 Kubota wheel weights

I just bought a Kubota B7510, 30 hrs, with FEL, 60" belly mower, new 4` box and new tandem axle trailer with electric brakes for $13,600 complete. Since this is my first tractor, can anybody tell me if this is a good deal?
But now to my main question, can anybody tell me where to get wheel weights for the rear tires? I don`t have a clue. I have access to a welding shop and can may make a set if someone has a good idea on how to make them. Thanks

The best system I found was called E-Z Weights, but the company disappeared.

The design used barbell weights on a 1 inch threaded rod that was bolted to the wheel. It should be pretty easy to duplicate if you have basic metal fabrication skills and access to a welder for a few minutes.

I have the drawings that I can transmit to you if you like. Look at my pics to see how the system looks when attached.

That looks easy enough. Thanks for the pics. I hope the rattle snake isn`t part of the weight deal? Thanks again

I found the best way to add weight to your tractor is by filling your tires with water. You can buy the water hose valve at just about any auto or tractor parts store. I have a 4wd B7500, and I filled all four wheels with water. This drastically increased the pulling capability of the tractor and allowed me to use a five foot box blade.

Water only works where it never freezes.

Howdy! I own a terramite T5C utility tractor and just got out of the hospital after having a nasty experiance with tipping due to high CG on side slope. The factory has made no provisions for Wheel weights so I have been working on building a Plate system when I discovered your EZ weights idea. It is wonderfully simple. Could I ask you to send me the drawings of the mounting plate to the wheel.
I have a good idea from your pictures how it should look but any further view would be great! Thanx Kelly
