I have filled rears....I have never had them off but I have rim rot around the nozzle and at other points. A little concerned that I will screw things up since the tires hold air and I can epoxy the rot. New rims must be $$ and hard to findIt is probably that Calcium fluid....I suppose you can't just let that absorb into the ground either. Thoughts?

Wow, okay....thank you. i think the smart play right now is to just use it until it is unusable. I would have a drive an hour to get to an ag area that has tire shops that deal with tractors...I live in the slurb.

So you can get those 10 or 12 lug rims for a TO 20? That is comforting to know.....but I would take a swing at fixing it first. Good idea about relocating the air valve...makes sense.

Make some calls to tire shops nearby. Any of them that deal with truck tires can do tractor tires. As for filling the tires with fluid, Iím in the northeast and have brought many tractors home that have had filled tires and rusted rims, all of them have rusted and I have replaced four sets of rear rims so far. My tractors are not filled, I use double ring chains on one and half-tracks on my other for winter use with no problems. Side note, I have a stack of rusted rims for the scrap yard!

Re-read the posting below and noticed a typo. Water is 8.35 pounds per gallon. Not 18.35 as I wrote below. Calcium still comes in around 12.5 pounds per gallon.

Thoughts? I have none. Ask my wife. Calcium is a good de-icer. Into the ground? Not really. Your local tractor tire shop might take it for free if you want to get rid of it.
I will walk you through this based upon my learning.If you remove the tire you can prop it up with a 2X4. Don't let it fall, you will hurt yourself picking it up.Cost me 3 days laid up.
To drain it, remove the valve core, place hose over valve stem and drain into a bucket. I also clamped the hose onto the valve stem. Stopped draining? Compressed air into the hose and inflate the tire. Air pressure will force the liquid out. You can angle the tire to get it out down to the last 1/2 gallon. After that breaking the bead can be fun. I had mine done at the local shop for $25. Your prices may differ. You can also get a duckbill hammer and break it down yourself. You can also find how to make a bead breaker on Youtube. Once the tire is off the rim, You can either repair the old rim or buy a new one. The new rim should run you about $110.If you desire to repair the old rim, drill a 5/8 inch hole 180 degrees† from old valve stem location. Grind off all the old rust. Get a piece of 14 Ga. sheet metal large enough to cover the damaged area. Tack weld into location. Heat up and beat into position around the damaged area. Weld into position. Grind off the rough edges to not damage the inner tube. Reassemble and reinstall. If you desire to refill it, Gemplers sells the fill device. Beet juice is an alternative if approved by your tire manufacture. Washer fluid can also be used as well as Anti-freeze. Water is 18.35 pounds per gallon and calcium comes in around 12.5 pounds per gallon.†
