Loaded Tires

Recommended Posts

Loaded Tires In 1973 I bought a 16hp Bolens with Ag tires and I had them loaded with Cloride no tubes. One year later I traded for a 16hp Simplicity, I had the Bolens ag tires put on it. In 1985 I traded for my 7790 the ag tires were put on it . This week I noticed a pin hole leak in one of them. Thirty years isn't to bad I think. I called the tire dealer and asked him how much to come and take them off, weld the hole, put tubes in them, Reload them and bring them back and put them on, He said $40.00 I asked each he said for the pair so I said come and get them. Tonight they are on the tractor with tubes. They should be good for ever. This & $1.00 might get you a small Coffee Maynard aka/UCD

Maynard, I am a firm believer in using tubes if you are loading tires. Both calcium chloride and water-antifreeze will eventually cause the wheels to rust on the inside. The process, however, is very slow because of the lack of oxygen which is required for iron to turn into rust (iron oxide). Rod H.

Rod The one wheel only had a pin hole in it which appered to be caused by a lack of paint in that spot on the inside of the wheel. There was no rust otherwise where the paint was good. But i agree tubes should have been put in. In 1973 when I got them loaded there wasn't any tubes availabe in town for that size and I was in a hurry. This & $1.00 might get you a small Coffee Maynard aka/UCD

Most newer farm tractors now have tubeless radial tires. For the tube type tires, 2/3 full was the standard for chloride. I was concerned about corrosion with the new tubeless tires, so I spoke to a tractor dealer and a tire dealer. Both told me that the tubeless tires need to be filled to the point where the rim remains constantly submerged. They claimed that it is impossible for the rim to rust, as it is never contacted by oxygen. Never had experience with it, but this is what I was told. Pat

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
