 Liquid in rear tires?

Need to ballast the rear tires of a 2210.
Suggestions on the type of fluid to use and best way to get it in there? Obviously, I'd like to avoid freezing, minimize corrosion and use something that is the least toxic possible. Suggestions?

I have antifreeze in my tires which has worked well. The downside is if you get a flat, and you have animals there could be an issue. Some other alternatives are beet juice which is enviro friendly. Some of the others are the windshield washer fluid and finally the foam. The foam is the most expensive but then you don't have to worry about flats but I think it also stiffens the ride as well.

Foam is a great solution for puncture flat tires, but not so good for ballast. There is a poduct called Rim-Guard that is specifically formulated for ballasting tires. I'm not sure what it is formulated from, but does not have the corrosive effect of CaCl. You may check with you dealer and see if they have it available. I had my dealer fill my tires with Rim-Guard.

millers1,
Curious as to why you're thinking of this. I have a 2210 and have been wondering if I should do the same. With the FEL I use the wt. bkt. full of concrete, but while doing other things the tractor feels a little tippy.

miller can speak for the 2210, but I can tell you that ballasted tires do make the tractor more stable. Not only do they increase the tipping capacity of the tractor, it also lowers the center of gravity and makes the tractor more stable.

Be aware that once it's in there, it's in there. The same benefits can be had from adding rear wheel weights, which can be easily removed when you want to shed some weight. Make sure you want to "permanently" add the weight.

I much prefer bolting iron to the rims to filling them with fluid. Wheel weights for most garden tractors will fit your 2210.

Although a little more pricey, wheel weights tend to be more convent and practical on the sub-CUT size tractors. JDs weights are very pricey, however there are other systems out there.

JDfanatic... I have a ballast box to compensate for when the FEL has a real heavy load. I'm using the tractor in hilly terain and wanted the loaded tires for light FEL loads (when the ballast box is too much) and general stability.

millers1,
Thanks, that's similar to my situation. So load the tires or wts? I'm not crazy about wts. I've heard WW fluid is a possibility. What are you leaning towards?

I used ww/fluid 10gl each tire. broke the top bead on a automotive tire machine poured it in and inflated the tires. Works well for the snow blower and doesn't seem to tear up the lawn. I use the ballast box filled with concrete for loader work.
