Opps, tire sprung a leak
If you have read any of my pet posts, you will not I was
not raised on or lived on a farm before, so even at this
late stage in my life, I am learning new things all the time
since moving at to the family farm. and so are my grown
children.

I did not know they put water in tractor tires to weigh them
down, but as you can tell the old tractor has a bad tire and
my husband had to let the water out of the tube, so a new
tire could be mounted. I took a set of pictures, and I
sent this one off to my daughter, saying "Help, our tire
sprung a leak" it really had her going, as she did not
know about water in the tires either.

Johan, it is possible to use just water if it will never
freeze.

Thanks, I know I learn something new everyday, we don't
get too many deep freezes here in Central Texas so I guess
that is why there were water in our tires.

Yes i know. Calcium is very bad for the rims. We had it in
the tyres from our D19. And im happy that it's away now.
When we did it spraying out of the tires, it jumped out of
it:-D.

I know it don't seem like a lot but 4-5 gallons of anti
freeze in 50-60 gallons of water in a tire will keep it from
freezing you might have a little slush in real cold but it
won't freeze and you can run the tractor
