    1985 Case/Ingy 446 - need rear wheel weights - tire avail?

    Hey y'all,

    I'm in need of some rear wheel weights for my 446. I'm in the proccess of looking around for some 9.50-16 rear ag tires as well to start getting ready for this coming winter.

    What I'm wondering is what you all are using for wheel weights? Does Ingersoll/Eastman still make them for my 446? If so, what weight are they? I'd like to put 100 lbs per wheel on it if I can. I figure that would really help with traction.

    Do weights from other brands match the hole pattern on the Case 16" wheels? If so, which ones? There sees to be 4 evenly spaced square holes in the rims as if you'd put a carriage bolt through the back side of the rim and then nut and washer the wheel weight on from the outside? I looked through the FAQ section and didn't see anything specifically addressing this topic.

    Also, if anyone has any suggestions as far as tire dealers in South Central PA that would have the size I'm looking for, that would be great as I'm starting the proccess of trying to get the tires for it as well.

    Thanks for any help or suggestions anyone has.

    -Greg

    Cast iron weight kits are still sold at the local Ingersoll dealers as the WW60. It consists of 4 individual, stackable plates that weigh 75 LBS per pair for a total of 150 LBS when mounted. The MSRP is $484.00. You can also buy the plastic wheel weight kit for $261.00 that weighs a total of 140 LBS or 70 LBS per wheel. The cast iron plates can be run 3 per side for 112 1/2 LBS per wheel.

    The alternative is for you to travel around to all the local agricultural equipment dealers in your area along with any places that dismantle ag equipment and sell parts. The Case rims use a very common bolt pattern and there are all kinds of cast iron weights that will bolt to them. Those weights are very common on the steer wheels of combines to offset the weight of the header.

    OK, Thanks for the super quick response Tom. I appreciate that!

    I'll call Messicks, they are a local Ag dealer in my area to see what they have available.

    Or you could fill the tires and save a boatload of money.

    I just found plastic 50lb/wheel weights( 12 inch). I only paid 20.00 for the set. I just need chains now, a local dealer has them for 60.00 so ill end up getting those soon.

    I'd say that you got yourself a real bargain since a new pair of plastic wheel weights cost $207.00 from a dealer. Nice score.

    Of course there's any number of redneck ways to do it yourself..... We've seen more than a few creative attempts.

    Hi OldFrank,

    10-4 on that! I met Jay last evening and picked them up! 'Sumbum' is a good dude. The Carlisle Farm Specialist 9.50-16's look GREAT! Very solid construction and MEATY. I'm sure they will end up dry-rotting before i wear the tread down on them!

    I'm looking forward to getting them mounted up in the near future. Now I just need to find some wheel weights and I should be good to go for the winter (and some new steer tires, as they are getting worn too, but not before I get the drag link repaired/replaced since it's bent!
