DO NOT use Calcium Chloride.
Use something non-corrosive like anti freeze, RV anti freeze, Rim Guard, or windshield washer fluid.

Why not mount them, and fill them yourself Ryan? It's not hard to do, and it'll save you $60.00.

Here's the set up I used to fill my tires.

I took the valve core out, wrapped a ratchet strap around the tire. Then I filled the can with washer fluid and tightened the strap to burp the tire. If I remember right I got 6 gallons in a 23-10.50x12.

I uploaded a drawing of a pressure operated fill tank that is very easy to build and use. here is a link to it. I found this on the net.

I hope this helps.

around here one of the easiest ways to put ww fluid in a tire is to take them off. Next lay them flat core side up, let out the air. Break the bead down onthe up side and pour the fluid right in. Simply reinflate and remount and your done. This only work for those using tubelass tires. Youll have to do one of the pump in things if you got tubes.

I'd look around for a repair or big truck shop for the antifreeze, as they have to pay to get it hauled away and will almost always give you all you can haul off for free.

On the personal note, i dont ever use any fluid in my tires, as i can load up 100# of wheel weights in just a few minutes time. If you use the standard of 8# per gal 4 gls only gives you 32# a wheel, which can done and then some with one iron weight or a home made concrete one. If your using the tractor for any garden working or lawn mowing you really dont need all the extra weight. This is why i choose the removeable weights. Also the fact that most of my tires are 6x12 i could only gain 16 to 20#, hardly worth it to me.
