Tire CaCl loading

Just replacing a rear rim that blew out (and dumped its load in my field, sigh). Wanted to know what my options are for CaCl are for reloading. Can I just buy ice melt that is nominally (90+%) CaCl, or do I have to be more careful? This tractor lives in Maine.

I've heard mixed views on beet juice. CaCl is definitely easier for me to deal with, because the tractor is on an island. On the other hand, I've got a pile of the stuff in a field (admittedly because I didn't tend to the rim earlier). Also heard people using RV antifreeze. That's not nearly as heavy as the CaCl, though, and I'm pulling logs sometimes, and sometimes on soft terrain.

Thanks in advance, all.
