Fill Tires WW vs CaCl

I am trying to decide if I should use windshield washer fluid or salt water (CaCl mixture) to fill my tires. I already have inner tubes and thought the additional weight of the CaCl mixture might be worth it. I know at some point the valves will corrode, but that is an easy fix.
My 23 x 8.5 x 12 rear tires should hold around 6 gallons 12 between the two of them. So WW would be roughly 42 pounds per tire and 84 total. A CaCl mixture should be roughly 30% heavier so around 54 pounds per tire and 108 total.
what are your guys thoughts on the value of the additional 25 pounds for traction vs. the potential corrosion from a CaCl mixture?
