||Anyone know how much liquid goes into a 12.4 x 24 tire for ballast.. Also what is the best to use, automotive anti-freeze or rv antifreeze?
I believe that fluid for tractor tires is actually a calcium chloride solution, not regular anti-freeze. Your local tire shop should be able to get you what you need.
||Aaron, Its best to use methanol. If you have a leak, it won't erode your inner rims. Have the tubes taken out, fill up to 75% with water/methanol and then you can plug a flat in the field. No problems with freezing. Most dealers offer methanol.
||You should look into a tire ballast product called "Rim Guard." It is relatively inexpensive, made of a sugar-beet molasses derivative, weighs more than either water/methanol, or sodium cloride - doesn't chemically react with your tire rims, rubber compounds or accessory tire items, is biodegradable (unlike the aforementioned compounds above, which kill and sterilize plant materials and soils) and is freeze protected to -35 degrees below zero. You can find using any search engine, and a number of tractor and truck service companies are now carrying this product.
