    Please DO NOT load tires with chloride!

    Repairing a neighbor's Craftsman FF24 garden tractor, issues with hydraulic cylinders on 3pt hitch. The tractor also has a front end loader so he had the rear tires filled with chloride for weight. After removing them for access I found they were starting to leak on the inner (tractor) side around the bead. Chloride is nasty stuff - it eats the rims. If you load your tires use automotive antifreeze or beet juice (by product from making sugar from beets) if available. If you have to use chloride PLEASE use a chloride safe tube to contain it. Future repair people will thank you and it will save you money in the long run.

    Beyond the hydraulic repair, he now has to buy rims, tires, and beet juice.

    I'm not an angry person! Stupid people just piss me off constantly.
