NH T7 tractor tyre size/wheel weights

Down under I'm being told we can no longer spec a tractor with 650/65R42 tyres and have wheel weights on it.
Something to do with the max weight the tyre can handle (think it's also to do with Michelin)

I can get 710's on a 42 inch rim and still get wheel weights.

All the other machines are on 650's so for compatibility I want to stay the same. One of my T7.250's has wheel weights so stuffed if I know why they aren't bringing them in like that anymore.

Any comments appreciated.

the 650 75 38 is a higher load rating tyre than a 650 65 42. The 650 65 42 is surprisingly low load rated considering its built for larger tractors so ul need to order with the 38 inch rim

is this across all brands?

was told that we could get 720 kg of weight for the 650 tyres
on the 710's we can put a ton of wheel weights on the back axle.

Standard 650/65r42 tyres are not up to most modern large tractors power and weight carrying capacity, but both Michelin and Bridgestone do an IF 650/65r42 with massive weight carrying and power capacity.
CNH offer these tyres in the 650/65r42 size as an option on the LWB 200hp+ tractors.

As soon as you attach a big implement to the linkage your putting a lot more weight to the tyres than what any wheel weights can achieve
That's fine when the mounted equipment is in the air, but when you drop in in the ground the weight comes off. Which of course is where draft control comes in. Kit like subsoilers and trio type cultivators shouldn't use draft and so wheel weights are useful. Trailed kit has no weight transfer either.

I was meaning if the tyres are on there limits with wheel weights how are they going to cope with implements

I would think its more that the tyres are at thier limits with the tractor and the typical implements being used in that region so therefore the wheel weights would possibly be overloadin the tyres
