I have a B model with 9.5 X 24 rear tires. What volume of liquid does one tire hold ? What are the safety measures I should use to drain the tires ? What is the best technique ? How should I dispose of the liquid ? The tractor came from Wisconsin last December. So it is not water in the tires, But some solution used by the folks there. Is it harmful to human skin ? Thanks for replying.

Hey Al If you want to get rid of the solution in those tires check with your local Ag. tire dealer, they may pump it out for it. Worth trying Harry

Best way I have found to drain tires is to take an old water hose and attach a piece of wire around one end and take the other end somewhere out of the way. Roll the wheel so the valve stem is at the top and run the wire around the tire. Remove the valve stem core, put the hose over it, tie the other end of wire to the hose to keep it in place and then wait. If you are fast enough none should escape. As the pressure starts going down roll the wheel so that the fluid continues to come out. Coveralls will do a good job of protecting your clothes.

ONLY FILL to about 80% or so the valve steam when at the top of the tire is in air. Most people to day use windsheild washer fuild. Some tire shop have methaol to mix with water to load a tire.

If it is calcium it is corosive. It will kill your grass. If you get it on your clothes wash them. If you get it on your leather shoes the toes will up like elf shoes. Call your local farm tire dealer, they might come and get it for nothing. We used to.
