If the fluid completely submerses the rim, it can't rust because of a lack of oxygen.
Here's some picutures of our 1755's rim. It was a dead tractor that while sitting along the fence the tire sprung a leak, so the CaCl was right against the rim. The only real rust is on the top, where the air was able to get at it. The surface rust appeared after dismounting the tires to have them mounted on our Massey 285. Still filled with CaCl.
I jacked it up and put the tractor on some cribbing on that side right away when it sprung a leak so the tire wouldn't be junk. Last summer we sold it for parts.
