From a tire professional who works with these tires everyday.

I know a man here who puts in water in the spring and drains it out in the fall. Milton makes an adapter for a garden hose to tractor valve stem. Wouldn't be any problem as long as you get it drained before freezing. Draining is no problem, just park valve stem on the bottom, remove the inner valve stem and stand back. Inflate when done. What little water is left would be no problem.

Dave Don't do that. I have taken an axe and chopped many tires off the rim. We have some large implement dealers that bring tractors up from the southern states with water filled tires. Our southern Iowa winter freeze ups will destroy water filled tires. The expanding water actually rips apart the tire. I have even done this with local tractors, the guys, being cheep, filled them with water intending to drain them and then forgot.

Do you need the special valve inserts for liquid or will the regular ones work? I need to put some in my d17 too. Cast is too expensive! Thanks in advance

Theres an adapter that you have to use to fill tires with fluid. Cost around $5 for it

i have the adapter but i mean the actual valve stem that goes into the stem on the inner tube valve stem. I've read and heard there are a valve for liquid filled tire and one for a air only tire.

I've always used the same type for either and never had any problems other then the normal problems which happen no matter what you have in the tube

Water not good. Even if you don't use it in the winter if it freezes it can/will destroy tires and tubes. I use wiper fluid in my tires any more. If you buy it buy the case you can still find it for $1-1.50 a gal. It will not rust the rims and is also safe for animals

Today's Featured Article - Identifying Tractor Smells - by Curtis Von Fange. We are continuing our series on learning to talk the language of our tractor. Since we canít actually talk to our tractors, though some of the older sect of farmers might disagree, we use our five physical senses to observe and construe what our iron age friends are trying to tell us. We have already talked about some of the colors the unit might leave as clues to its well-being. Now we are going to use our noses to diagnose particular smells. ELECTRICAL SMELLS ... [Read Article]
