I think "newer" tractor rims must be painted with better coatings. The tubeless rears on my Kubota have been filled with CaCl since new in 1983 and the last time the tires were replaced the rims looked absolutely pristine....

TOH, As Jimmyjack says, are you sure it's CaCl?
I don't doubt they have some coatings that woulod resist it. A guy would sure have to be careful with the tire spoons when installing/removing a tire though. One scratch in the paint and...

Positive. I watched S&S Tire pump it out, mix the new fill from a 50# bag of CaCl, and pump it in. Local dealer loads tires on new machines with the same stuff. There was a little chipped paint along the outer part of the bead but nothing inside where it was exposed to the solution. I don't know the how of it but they don't corrode anything like the N's do.

I trust your judgement, but sometime lick it, I cant fathom any rims lasting that long with salt in them.

The eroding of the rims is oxidation, same as rusting. It uses up oxygen, and once the oxygen that is in there is used up the process stops. Though I don't like it any better than anyone else. It is common practice now to load tubeless tires. I have a ZT mower that was about six years old when I got it. It had a slow leak and loaded tires. The inside of the rim had turned dark gray and didn't appear to have lost any amount of metal.
