I'm not fitting wheel weights in the back. Maybe on the front ones at a later time, they are not easy to get hold of here.

The reinforcment on the rear rims where needed when working in the forest back in the days. It was not uncommon to "bend" the rims when using a big winch (and my 654 had a huge one sitting on the back for most of its time) :-)

Got it finished just in time for a local festival. My girlfriend drove the County with a trailer full of children downtown.

Frode,

Here, in the Philippines, rear wheel weights are the dream of every farmer whenever they buy a tractor, especially ford and fordson tractors. That probably was the reason why the dealers made their own wheel weights. Two of the fordsons around here has a couple of wheel weights on the rear, but according to my father, those weights were very very very heavy. In fact, a fordson around here would only need one weight on each rear rims!
