    Default How much fluid in tires?

    How many gallons will it take to fill the rear tires of my BX25?

    I think I'm going with a Gempler Air/Liquid Adapter Kit.

    Dumb question here...so don't have any coffee in your mouth.....

    Can this be gravity fed into the tire? (Beer bong anybody?)

    Or just go to Harbor Freight and buy a cheapy marine utility pump and be done with it.

    Here is a link to Rim guard where they list tire sizes and the amount it will take to 75% liquid filled.

    Also there are devices to help you gravity feed it into the tires such as the one you mentioned: Quick Fill Tractor Tire Attachment - GEMPLER'S

    I filled my BX2230 tires last fall. I found purple power washer fluid for under 2 bucks a gallon. I bought 20 gallons of it. I put 10 gallons in each one, but because it was still flowing so well, I added about 1 1/2 gallons of water to each also.

    I used my dehumidifier bucket on top of a 6 foot ladder. I removed the valve core and let the liquid flow. I had to let it bleed out the air fairly often. I bet I bled air out of it 20-25 times per tire. Took about an hour on each side. The other thing I did was use a floor jack and when I was bleeding air out, I let the jack down quite a ways in order to put some pressure on the air, then I'd jack it back up before I started the flow again. I also found it quite helpful to have a shutoff on the hose right in front of the fill adapter...

    If you look at the pdf on this webiste and then look up your tire size it tells you how many gallons

    I had a little 12 volt pumped that worked quite well for filling along with that gempler tool.
