Personally, I think that Rim Guard is the only way to go when it comes to fluid filling tires.

It's a lot heavier that WW Fluid or anti-freeze. It weighs @11 lb/gal vs @8 lb/gal. With my 26-12-12 tires which took 10 gal...that's an extra 33 lb per tire.

It's non-toxic as well, and unlike anti-freeze, if it leaks out, it won't kill any animals. In fact it's actually animal food grade.

And lastly, it's non-corrosive and enviromentally friendly, unlike CaCl, which will eat up the wheels, and when it leaks kills all of your grass.

OldBuzzard...your math is off.....If you used Rim-Guard at 11 pounds per gallon, and used 10 gallon, that would be 110 pounds....If this is for 2 tires, it would be 55 pounds per tire. Sorry...I just had to do it.

You are right about my math being off...but not in the way you think. I was talking about one tire. Note that I said 33 lbs per tire. It should be 30 lbs per tire. 26-12-12 CST ANCLA tires will take 10 gal each which would be 110 lbs per tire for a total of 220 lbs.

I guess I should have been a little more specific and said: "With my 26-12-12 tires which took 10 gal each..."
