I love the low tech bead breaker. Thanks for the picture. I have added it to my picture file.

Cheapest thing to do is toss the old contaminated tubes and put in new ones.---- the old ones will give you continuous leaking problems----been there done that. Once I tackle one of them its new all the way as there is no other way. --- Sad that people put this crap in tires since it serves no useful purpose and only destroys tires. If they think they need more weight , ( which I dont want),---that is what cast iron wheel weights are for, plus they can be removed without damage to tires.

I think you will find your tubes too far gone to save. when you try to remove the water valve---you will tear the tubes. Stick on patch stems will not last on tubes that had cal. in them----cal destroys the tubes makin them non-fixable.
You can try to remove/replace the stems---your tubes---your time/money.---might get lucky!lol!

I'm guessing it is an issue with the valves and not the tubes. Are there replacements available? Can these be replaced without taking the tire and tube off, if so how?

This I'm sure has been answered, but the valve is part of the tube. The whole thing needs to be replaced.

Weight helps a tractor amazingly. It's unsprung weight and it's below the center of gravity Which helps stability and also traction. If you have ever used a tractor pulling a blade or disk or something ground engaging without weight and then with weight. There is a huge difference.

Yes. Look up tractor valve stem replacement.

But as previously stated, tubes are usually not worth repairing. And from experience the stem patch doesn't always hold/work.
I have an excuse. CRS.

I have unmounted the worst of the two wheels and successfully removed the tire from the rim. I think that the rim is structurally sound and I can deal with the rust. I will replace both tubes with new ones and just use air in them, I have wheel weights on the tractor.

While it's off wire brush and paint that rim, use a good rust converter first.
