You can drain those yourself but you better be real careful.

Leave them on the tractor and rotate the tires so the valve stem is on the bottom.
Remove the valve stem and slide a piece of rubber hose over the top and clamp it on with a hose clamp.
Stuff the other end of the hose into a 55 Plastic drum.
When the tire goes flat, fire up the air compressor and fill the tire up so it is off the ground again.
As soon as you pull off the air line, the fluid will be coming out under pressure. Stuff it back in the drum and continue to drain the tire.
Repeat until done.
You should wind up with about 1/2 gallon remaining that will not come out.
Loaded tire is about 450 pounds.
Rim and tire weigh in around 105 pounds. That center piece is good for another 40 pounds easy.
