The instructions don't tell you thsat in order to install you have to drill thought the mounting hub as well as the wheel to put the bolts through. They also don't tell you they don't fit. In order to get them to work and not vibrate loose, you have to go to the nearest ***** or ********** and get 6 long threaded bolts, more lock washers, flat washers and nylon thread locking nuts. Two bolts lets the weights go lopsided, putting three on balances it better. Using nuts and washesrs on both sides of the wheel keeps them from coming loose and falling off and also enables them to fit.
Caution. I purchase these weights a year ago and they work fine however I have a hilly driveway so this year I decided to add weight, I read the reviews that say they are stackable. This is not the case for all tractors. I ordered a 2nd set and the 3rd paragraph of the directions says do not stack on model 917 lawn and yard tractors which is what I have.(Probably has something to do with the turn tight front wheels).
Had to buy 3 sets before I had enough weight, ended up costing me a fortune but they look great and do what they are supposed to do. I only use them on my 'demo' machine for the look because I had to for our shows at the fair. Gotta look good I guess. On all my real work machines I just slap a pair of Lugghandles on for $40. If you need something pretty these shiny little hubs are the way to go, other wise I'd just stick with the old style luggs, that are cheaper and easier to change.

The Craftsman 30 lb wheel weights part # 24434 fit the 8 inch wheels on the YT4500. I say this because the describtion does not mention which lawn tractors this item fits and does it give you any diemensions that you can use to determine the correct fitment to your tractor. Some tractors may require drilling holes in the wheels to install but the YT4500 has pre drilled holes. With my tractor the install was a snap one person can do this in about a hour but having someone hold the weight is a plus. Tools are nothing special I used two 9/16 in sockets one deep well on the back helps. Be sure to tighten well but don't over tighten or the bolt could break. The thing that may become an issue is that there is not a space to access the valve stem to fill the tire. This will become an issue later I am sure as I fill my tires offten on my older Sears garden tractor. To do this you will need to remove the wheel weight so you will have an added incentive to keep the slow leaks fixed. All in all this addition is a must if the lawn is at all wet and not completely flat & smooth other wise you will spin the tires. The wheel weights in my case are a good investment for both ease of operation & safety. Easy to install, fast delivery but some what pricey. Tip: look inside the hood of your tractor mine has all maintenance parts & attachments that fit listed on a tag with part numbers.
