I have a Cub Cadet 1864, which has some pretty standard 12" rims. I
recently bought a set of wheel weights on Ebay. The weights actually
came off a John Deere- I had checked in advance to make sure they fit.
Anyhow, I am almost done changing the color of the wheel weights from
JD green to CC white. My question is, what do some of you do to keep
your rims (as well as weights) from getting paint chips or scuffs from
the metal to metal contact where the two objects touch? My weights
will touch the outside part of the rim, not the inside where the rim
mounts on the hub.
I was thinking that I might try tying an old bicycle tube around the
wheel weight before installing in on the rims.
I'm putting a link to the ebay auction so you can get an idea of what
the wheel weights look like.
