I ordered a new 13.6 X 28 and the shop I'm getting if from uses Methanol. I was expecting Anti-Freeze. Looking for opinions on Methanol. Are there any drawbacks or negatives in using Methanol instead of Anti-Freeze?

Thanks.

I have a '59 John Deere 435 by the way.

All I know is calcium is cheaper and weighs more but leaks can rust rims. Methanol leaks don't rust rims but can wipe out a barn full of cats in short order. Don't ask me how I found out, wife thought it was coyotes or neighbors dogs.

Wind shield washer fluid is what I have in my John Deere CUT. Have en extra sprayer pump that I used to fill with. BTW this fluid is mostly methanol.

I have windshield washer solvent in my 12.4 28 rears. I bought a 55 gallon drum of -20 solvent and then added about 5 gallons of water to each tire to finish filling. No problems in SE MI. Pretty cheap way to go.

Should have added, I put my drum on a trailer and used a small siphon hose to the tire laying on its side with the valve steam side on a cinder block. Only effort was getting it upright again.
