Calcium Chloride & water was also used in tractor tires for ballast when plowing, etc.

Water inside a tire will cause high speed imbalance, as will fix-a-flat. I run across this almost everyday in my business. I have dismounted many, many a tire to remove the water and/or fix-a-flat that is causing imbalances.

Here is my thinking too. Although water is used as a coolant in automobile systems, I think the functions of a radiator and heater core as the heat exchangers in an automobile have been neglected to be taken into account for. A tire will not have a heat exchanger, thus an outlet for the water to disperse heat once it has reached the temperature of the tire internally.
For good understanding ( I am Dutch ) you write that to much liquid water cources disbalance , wich can cource blowing tire ( fix a flat??) .
The amount of water I think enaug is to go over to gas when higher temp.
this is about 18 gram so about 0,040 lbs ( converse yourselfes to gallon or whatever), then at 100degr C/212degr F all the water would be as gas .

But I only mentioned tire-specialists for that they can confirme the rimm inside the tire is not coroded . Can you confirm this or do you have other experiŽnce?

I am still not totally shure about water , like how much energy it absorbes as gas to rise 1 degr in temp For oxigen and nitrogen its about 20Joule/Moll/degr Kelvin/celcius.
When I use water 1 calory =4.2Joule a gramm .
1 moll is 18 gramm so 18 x 4.2= 73.6J/moll/degr K but mayby as gas it aborbes lower energy . there is though sertainly a difference between when pressure stays the same , and when vollume stays the same( as is in tires), 2nd is lower energy absorbtion for 1 degr K.

But I stated my story like i did , so Nitrogen lovers must try to demith it.
Now the Nitrogen-lobby state some arguments that we have to demith, so fight it with their own weapons.
