Any fluid inside the tires will be an issue! I only load tires that I have coated the wheels with epoxy paint.

They say it takes 20yrs for calcium to rust out the rims, that's a long time.

How long would it take WWF or RV antifreeze or Plumbing antifreeze to do the same?

I could really care less if the yard gets messed up a little by ag tires, better than spinning.

If I plan to load the tires, I take them apart and paint the rims with epoxy/appliance paint on the inside.

After repairing rims on our farm, I feel as though I can call that a lie. Calcium chloride is nasty stuff. It might take 20 yrs for it to make the entire rim disappear, but much less time to ruin a rim.

Even if it takes that log to ruin a rim, why do it? That's wasting money.
