I've been doing some work on the Wards Plow Trac. I have retubed the tires. painted the rims and hubs. I am planing on loading the tires. I have a friend with about 30 gallons of used antifreeze I can have for free so I am going to load with it. My question is how much do I put in the tube? The tire size is 6-12.

PS anyone got a cycle bar mower for this unit they are dying to get rid of?
Thanks!

Here's a thread I did a while back
>http://gardentractor...ded-tires-4051/

Here's a link to how much fluid different tires hold
>Rim Guard Hydro-Flation Tables for Agricultural Tires | Drive Wheel Tires | Terra Tires | Light Construction Tires

And from what I've been able to find out
Windshield Washer fluid is the cheapest. RV antifreeze cost a little more and is not toxic.
WWfluid and RV anti freeze weigh about the same.
Calcium is heaver but will rust the rims.

I was able to get 6 gallon in a 23x8.5 - 12 so 4.5 would be pretty close.
