I couldn't tell you if they will fit or not, got a tape measure?

They will fit but the bolt holes do not align perfectly. They also weigh a little less than Cub weights.

Thanks for the reply! The seller is 2 hours away and no help. Hate to make the trip if they are not going to fit.

You never said what style rear rims you have. These are standard Cub weights on flotation rims.Not sure about the diameter of the weights you pictured compared to these

I assumed you have the 24" narrow wheels and not the 16" hi-flotation.

WOW! I had never seen wheel weights on the high floatation tires before. They appear to stick out quite a ways.
Looks like standard cub wheel weights work fine on the 24" rims.

I talked to quite a few guys before I bought a set for our 154. The bolt holes are half inch and the center hole is smaller than the A weights. the bolt holes are 5/8 on the A weights. hope this helps you

Better to put liquid in the 13.6-16 floatations tires than wheel weights. The 8.3x24 tires get better traction due to less foot print on the ground equals more pounds per square inch.

With my experience with the 154 & fcub the correct snow plowing setup is front wheel weights times "2" sets for steering with the plow down. The rear gets two sets too for traction. We get heavy wet deep snow.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

I know this is a little late on the post...I would like to know where you found these weights, also did you purchase them for your 154?

The red weights in the first picture are for Farmall A, B, BN and Super A tractors. They can be mounted with a little creativity.

The yellow weights in the next two pictures are common Farmall Cub weighs. As you can see these can also be mounted with a little creativity.

These will also be much easier to find, and weigh more than the front weights being discussed in the vine. IIRC those weights only weigh about 50lbs. Cub weights are about 140lbs each.

You can find the weights discussed here on Craigslist quite often. You may have to look up and search other nearby cities to find them, but they are out there. Be willing to drive a couple hours.
