How did you get those rear wheel weights, of all things, so shiny and smooth? You use filler to fill in the pits?

I used 80 grit flap wheels on all the cast iron on my SMTA. Then epoxy primer and the new "liquid filler". Like Bondo only you can roll it on.

Seems to me 560's look much better with either 14.9-38 or 16.9-38 rear tires instead of the regular small diameter 15.5-38's that were standard "issue". They look more level instead of high in the front. Buddy of mine had a turbo'd 560D and he said the 16.9-38 tires made it a different tractor and it could do so much more. My uncle's 2 560D's with regular 15.5-38's never seemed like much more tractor than my 281 Cu. in. Super M with 14.9-38 rear rubber.
