Where did you get the threaded stem style tubes?  I haven't found them locally.

Got RimGuard, about 6.5 gallons per tire. Each tire weighs about 90 pounds now.

Cool!  That means that you got close to 20 lbs. more in each tire as opposed to Wiper Fluid.

 

Just out of curiosity, what did the dealer charge you for it?

He charged $4.50 / gallon for the RimGuard. I would make the 1.5 hour each way drive again though, it is well worth it.
