Metal work has always interested me: Machining, welding, backyard foundry/metal casting, blacksmithing, sheet metal, etc.

Lately I've been contemplating notion adding pie-type wheel weights to Ford 8N tractor.

Thing is, it would take me a bit of work chasing down local pie-weight to use making mold for sand casting, locating scrap steel to melt down, etc. There are competing solutions:

Which is better? I've seen mention through numerous forums, people loading tractor tires versus adding wheel weights.

What to load in a tire, they're numerous DIY recipes for Windshield Wiper Fluid (mostly water, 10% alcohol to prevent freezing, and a dash of dish detergent) that seems like it would work out better than using plain water.

Seems WWF would suit traction needs without liability of calcium chloride's eating up rims, while being a much simpler/economically sound way to go, rather than trouble/time/effort/expense sand-casting wheel weights?
