Easiest way to put fluid in a tire (providing it is tubeless) is to break the bead loose on one side. With that side up, just pour the fluid into the tire till it is as full as you can get it. Then put air in the tire to reseat the bead. You can't get it completely full, but you don't want to. You need some air space for compression, otherwise the tire would be like a rock since fluid doesn't compress. The cheapest fluid that I have heard of is the winter mix of windshield wiper fluid that is rated to -20 degrees.

Hi. The tire can be filled with fluid to the level of the valve stem when the tire is on the tractor on level groung and the valve stem is at the top. You need to leave this much air for compressibility. If you filled the tire completely full, it would be as hard as a solid tire. Fluid is not compressible and air is. Al Eden
