Just wondering if filling the front tires would be worth the effort? How much weight could be realized?

Thanks

Not a lot. You can get front wheel weights also for some sizes but I don't know if Deere made them. You may be better off trying to add some weight to the front of the tractor somewhere.

An 18x850x8 should hold 1.5 to 2 gallons. About 15 to 20 lbs depending on the fluid you use. Avoid Calcium Chloride like the Plague. Extremely corrosive. Rim Guard (Beet Juice) come in at 10 lbs a gallon to get the most weight.
