    You'll generally find that kind of damage/rust on any old tube type rim, even if it never had Calcium Chloride in the tube. The problem is that a tube type tire doesn't seal well around the bead, and it lets water in over time.

    As bad as the pitting is, it's probably time to replace the rim. Even at only 15psi the air still packs a lot of wallup if it lets go.

    I had to bite the bullet a few years back, and replace the rims on the Allis AND the Oliver That little adventure set me back over $2000

    Nice save on that rim

    My WD Allis needed the same. One I welded - the other was too far gone.

    Lucked out and found a used one for $75

    Both the used one, and the one I welded, I sandblasted the inside, primed and painted.

    Left the outside rusted to match the tractor

    rims like this are patched every day. I've done my share as well. I get where you are coming from about the pressure aspect but the large round of the rim is pushed in ward which normally have plenty of gusseting in the way of a wheel center and the outward push on the bead area shouldn't be a big issue either as even if one small area is thin, it is normally surrounded on both sides by good metal. For all the more pressure you run in a big tractor tire they do fine. The calcium is really what eats the rims, most of the time, it is waaaaayyyyy more aggressive than plain old water.
