2 piece front wheel weights?

Thu Nov 22, 2012 7:21 pm

I am trying to add more weight to the front of my loboy and was wondering if anybody has used Massey 2 piece split weights?

Do they fit ok is my main question.

I found a sample on ebay.

Thanks

I don't know if they would work but it seems at that pricr you could just buy a set of cub front weights and put them on before you put the wheel on.

The ones I found are cheaper than ebay, the man says they weigh about 45lbs and pair of splits, aren't the cub weights around 30lbs each. I have a pair of cub weights on there but it just is not enough, I do a wheelly every time I go up a small hill with anything on the one point. I also give the nieces rides on the carrier and do not want it to pick up as it has before.

Just wondering if anyone out there has a set and how they fit.

Thanks

They don't look like a fit. Usually 12" wheels have the same pattern, but not those.

I bought a set by mistake and thought they would work but no they will not. I got lucky and a fellow in California wanted them and I made enough on them to get my real cub weights for nothing.
