I have someone wanting me to buy a pair of their wheel weights, they are plastic and claims they came off a 444 they just got, but the issue is the seller claims they are different weights, one weighs more than the other (his observation not mine, I haven't seen them yet).

Did Case have different weighing plastic covered weights for the 16" wheels? or are they some other brand and mis-matched?

Nothing in my manual about wheel weight weight other than on my Zebra the cast iron weights were the correct ones at that time. How much does the's for 16" wheel weigh?

That's an interesting question that can only be answered by looking at, and weighing them. Plastic weights have an opening in them through which the owner added material. Whatever that material weighed and how much was put in dictates the end result. I have a set that have concrete in them. I have a set that has gravel in them, and a set with nothing in them.

I have also heard of people filling them with lead, from either lead shot, wheel balancing weights, or sinkers. I have heard of them being filled with sand.

Sorry I can't give you a figure as I have never weighed any of mine.

There is only one plastic weight for the Case tractors and that's the K-10. These are just a plastic shell that are filled with some sort of product. i don't know if Case sold them to the dealers as an empty shell in order to reduce shipping costs. If so, then that could account for the discrepancy in weight. The manual says that they are supposed to weigh 75 pounds per side.

I have had around 10 sets or so of these and I have found them to generally weigh in around 60lbs each. Most of them had concrete in them and one or two sets had sand. I also have read that you can put lead or old wheel balancing weights in them and fill it up with concrete after that due to the led being heavier than the concrete.
