Found a 1962 Good-Year "Farm Tire Handbook" in flea market. Here"s the weights of a 12.4/11-38 "H" rear tire with calcium chloride;
"Solution 100" filled 100%;
168 lbs. CaCl 48 gallons water 55.9 total gallons of "Solution 100"
568 total lbs. weight added to tire

"Valve Level", 75% filled, valve at top of tire;
126 lbs. CaCl
36 gallons water
41.9 total gallons solution
426 lbs. total weight added.

This handbook goes on for several pages about this "Solution 100", apparently a 100% filled tire, how it ran better, pulled better, lasted longer...

The coop here will only fill to valve stem. I figure I'm not missing that much. They are about the only ones with a salt tank and pump so they dictate the game.
