If you cleaned and painted your wheels,why do you want to put the calcium cloride back in them?
If you need weight, go with the stuff that doesn"t corrode the rims.
But thats your choice, you could go with wheel weights and not be concerned about having to paint the rims as often.

CaCl has been, for over SEVEN decades, the cheapest way to add weight to tires. It also adds the most pounds per gallon compared to other juices. Rims don"t instantly rot when in contact with CaCl like some would have you believe. Just fix the leak when it leaks, not months later. One of the most needlessly over-argued issues here.

Normally I'd be why take the chance but every $ counts and I have the fluid. And it was in those tubeless tires for over 40 years and when I removed the tires (switched from turf to Ag tread) I was astounded to see spotless wheels on the inside. The outside of the wheels looked like what you'd expect on a well used 46 year old tractor.

I guess you can say I'm being cautious as this time I decided to use tubes wen mounting the new tires. Hopefully upping the chances of a trouble free next 40 years. Those darn tubes cost me $20 each plus the $12 each for mounting the tires with them.

I guess I could have installed the tires w/o the tubes and spent that money on say washer fluid but the tires I put on while quite good aren't new and I hate tires that loose air/water.

Hi If those tubes you put in aren't the finest quality genuine rubber you'll be seeing them again pretty soon, especially if you got cold winters. had a new tube put in our chore tractor with fluid. it lasted 3 months and got a flat. I pumped it and repaired it, as tire shop wasn't interested. 3 months later same thing. this time it ripped right the side of last patch. 10 swear words later and $200 spent tire went back on with Kleiber top quality tube, and fluid back in. that was 4 months ago and tires get a hard life on out tractor with Canadian winters. Tire guy won't fit new tubes made in the land of not quite right anymore,said he was loosing too much time and money on repeat calls for tube failure a few weeks later. He figured ours at 3 months was a good one when I got the new tube. Regards Robert
