I personally like having ballasted tires and still run calcium in 2 of my tractors. Ballast - either cast iron weights or fluid - makes the tractor a more stable platform and no tractor can put its full horsepower to the ground without added weight.
But that is not to say you Must use ballast either.
I don't think I would want to run without the rear wheels being approximately equal however.
If you couldn't find someone to refill the tire then just then just put it back on empty.
Then put the tractor on a level spot, lift the entire rear end so both rear tires were just off the ground and roll the tires so both valve stems are at the top.
Hook a plastic hose from one valve stem to the other then roll both tires so both stems are at the bottom and let the fluid equalize by gravity flow.
It would probably take a little while and you would likely need to roll them back up a time or two a to burp them.
That would give you some added ballast and the 2 tires would be equally weighted.
