The wheel weights are probably only 2/3rds of the weight of the fluid that they will replace, but they are easier to work with and they are not corrosive. I'm keeping them.
I welded up more pinholes in the really patched up wheel and ground them smooth and then primed the wheel.
And speaking of patching, I had to put an addition onto the drawbar so I cut a chunk out of another drawbar and wee bit off the end of this one and welded them together. It was nice to get back to working with real metal and more heat.

That rim is ready for paint

Those wheel weights will be all you will need for your plow days 95% of the time.
