I have wheel weights on my tractors. I never remove them. Eaven in the summer, they seem to make the tractors a little more stable on any hils, and stop most tire spinning in the damp aeras. Plus how often do you remove the wheels? I have to take one off of my 224, becouse of a flat, and this is the first time it has been off sence I have had it. Now I do need more weight sometimes,[tilling, log splitter] and for that I add on more.
