That is a very good question. Just like you, I am very familiar with the ones on the left since I own about 7 or 8 pair of them. I have not seen the other style previously. Keep in mind that the 15 and 16 inch rims used by Case had the common 6 on 6 bolt pattern for agricultural rims. Tractor companies don't make rims. They buy rims from companies that do nothing but make rims. Therefore, almost every brand of tractor out there had wheel weights cast for them, either in their own foundry or by a sub-contractor. I suspect that these are not Case weights but if they work.... they work. For a show tractor, I agree it would matter.

I went back and asked the seller if he knew for sure what the non case weights were off of, and he responded that to his knowledge they were wheel horse weights. Some of the early d-series and 18 automatic tractors had 15" wheels. The later C-195 also used these weights.

A few months ago an eBay ad had these listed as Case GT weights. They looked a little odd, so I saved the images for future reference. Notice one shows a stamped number B over 103108.








I found a Wheel Horse C-195 manual that shows the rears to be 27X9.50-15
A youtube video of a Wheel Horse C-195 that shows the same style weights:



BTW: As I recall, the ebay seller listed the weights as 50 lb. each. Might want to check them and see.

I took another look at the weights. The weights I have are stamped 103108. Putting one of them on the scale, it weighs in at 48 lbs. That matches them up with the ones you saw on ebay.

I am not sure how visible on the radar they are to the majority of people with Wheel Horses. Most Wheel Horse garden tractors have 12" rims. There is a Wheel Horse cast iron rear wheel weight for 12" rims that sells for 200+ consistently when on the market.

I can say I paid 150+shipping for the pair seen. I wanted them for my 648 loader and had seen the 250-300 price for case weights on ebay. I saw one pair of that style of weights on the redsquare classifieds for 100 and they sold within a few hours. The pair on redsquare was just listed as 15 inch wheel weights. I think at first glance a lot of people thought they were Case weights. I know I did at first.

The pair of case weights on the left came on a Wheel Horse C-120. I paid 150 for the entire tractor including a deck. They had them on the 12" rims with the carriage bolts throught 2 of the holes in the pattern of 6. I bought the tractor just for the weights and plan to sell it to recoup my money.
