Had to buy a new rear tire and rim. It is not loaded, but the existing tire on the tractor is loaded. Is there any problem running one loaded and the other not loaded?

Very good way to get your self in trouble very fast. The loaded tire will and can cause you to flip the tractor over due to it being heavy and the other side not being loaded so if the loaded tire is down hill and you hit the wrong thing at the right time you can end up under the tractor. Learned that the hard way and almost flipped the 841 I have because of that. By the way if you need info on how to fill a tire with fluid I have a page from a manual that tells you have to do it and one set up you can set it up and walk away from it and it will do it on its own

easy to load the new one with a 5$ burp valve and a garden hose...

the unloaded tire will have less traction and may spin more due to open diffy...

Sorry can not agree Dean seen to many cases of a flipped tractor due to on tire filled with fluid and the other one not filled. Plus you will wear out the unfilled tire faster due to it slipping first

Never seen anyone flip a tractor for this reason.

Of course the non loaded tire will slip first.

The best solution, of course is to dump the CaCl from both tires.

I have BTDT and got very lucky one time on the 841 I have. My dad had one tire fixed but did not have fluid put back in. I was driving it in high gear if has a Sherman combo so fast for a tractor. Came around a curve in the drive way that is on the hill. Hit a big rock and if I had not been able to turn fast into the turn I would have flipped it over. 2 or 3 things saved me. I turned hard and Sharp so the tire that was not loaded went back down to the ground then dropped the bucket to the ground so as to come to an extra fast stop. If was 24 hours later and the tire had fluid in it. Have a 3000 here right now that the unloaded tire is about a slick due to that problem
