remove air so the tire isn't pressurized, then break the bead loose from the rim and flip the tire over, might need to wedge a screwdriver in the bead to hold it open for the fluid to come out. I would think this will get most of it out.

Re: washer anti freeze in my tires

An EASY WAY??? Sure, take the tyre to a tyre shop and have them do it. Don't tell them beforehand and video it.

Remove the valve from the stem. Set tyre where lowest point is the stem and allow to drain, may take several hours. Could try using a small transfer pump the same way it may have been filled. then break the bead to remove most of the rest.

Re: washer anti freeze in my tires

Are you removing it just to make it ride smoother?

If so, why not just remove about 1/2 of it and leave the rest in. It should help provide traction and it should ride very similar to unfilled tires at 1/2 full.

To do that I would jack the rear of the tractor up and rotate the tire to where the valve stem is at the mid point on the tire. It will drain slow, may take a couple hours, but it will drain.

Re: washer anti freeze in my tires

yeah my back trashed and it rides like Flintstone wheels , I was figuring on rotating the stem to the 6 0' clock taking out the stem value and let the air pressure push it out / Don't need the extra weight for mowing have a 700 twin Polaris for my plowing. once I get most out i'll have them broke down and wiped dry so not to rust ~~oldguy

Re: washer anti freeze in my tires

Jack the back end up, position the valve as you stated, lower the jack, and sit in the seat until it quits draining. Jack it up and turn the tire for the valve to be above the fluid level to let air in, then do the above procedure again.

It will take about 3 or 4 cycles as above to get it to minimum. Then it can be broken down to finish.

Personally, I would leave the last bit in for the traction on wet grass and the stability for doing the ditches. The air chamber should be large enough for a comfortable ride.
