The farming industry has been adding water and other things as ballast into their tractor's tires to help lower the center of gravity and prevent jumping out of rows for decades. Now many competitors and enthusiasts add water ballast into their tires to enjoy the same benefits, plus potential added tire life as the ballast will help prevent slipping as well. Since the water always settles evenly (as opposed to extra weights added around the wheel) it makes a crawler more stable and less likely to roll off the course. For offroad use only, driving at on-road speeds with ballast can be very dangerous. If you live in cold climates, adding antifreeze is recommended.
