This will answer your questions. Hmmm? Just looked and the 24's aren't listed. I would think around 8.5-9 gallons, possibly 70-75 lbs.

8.34 lbs per gallon. Probably not much weight gain the tires aren't big enough to hold alot

I have to disagree....I added windshield washer fluid to my rears and it made a world of difference. Probably 7 to 8 gallons each equaling 58 to 66 pounds per rear tire!

Have to disagree with that statement.  8.34 X 8.5 = 70.89 lbs per tire.  That is 140+ lbs total.  Not much weight gain?

gary990, if you are planning on using a blade for snow, OR a blower for snow, OR garden plow, by all means fluid in the tires will help with traction. In snow, tire chains are a must too....This will set off another debate!

4 link are good, 2 link are better, and yes "rubber" chains will work too!

this is my sons 318 he asked me to go through it. so i said i have chains for it and he wanted whts for it  i priced them and they are a little high so i priced fluid and thats a lot cheeper. they have 9 gal. in each tire i weighed them and they were 38.5 without  and 110.5 with fluid around 73lbs each and thats not bad at all.   thats better then 200.00 for a pair of whts.... and i checked ihe tire size again and they are 24/12.00/12 know to put chains on. thanks you all for your help.
