I have 2 newer tractors with used antifreeze in the rear wheels for weight. It has worked out well for me. If you want to make home made wheel weights I have seen people make them from concrete. That might also be an option for axle weights as pictured by Kirk-NJ. Last idea- depending on your need to use your three point hitch and have the weights at the same time you could make a weight that attaches to the three point hitch- easy to add/ delete weight as needed. You could use old barbell weights, concrete, make a box to fill with stone, etc. This is often done on smaller loader tractors. I made such a weight 40 years ago for my father out of an old truck fuel tank filled most of the way with stones, then poured in real loose concrete to fill the voids. I left it about 3-4 from full so there was room for a chain or something else and had a draw bar extension on the tractor so the weight actually sat on the drawbar and we could still hook up a wagon or trailer.
