Quite quickly, it ain't for he faint of stomach, in about 5 minutes you want to hurl to the side, but it is so worth it as ballast IN the tires. :D

It's beet juice isn't it? I think the high sugar content is what keeps it from freezing. I never thought about any smell it might have. Rim Guard was looking for dealers up this way. I don't know if they found any. I must ask at the JD dealer the next time I'm in there.

You are looking at what was leftover of the rimguard when i evened up the weight of the tires, as they were loaded unequally by a bit. I ended up moving a half a gallon, but did not take any pics when there was more of it in the jug.

OK, thanks......Couldn't figure what I was looking at!

Where do you find the "Rim-Guard"?

I know what it is and what it is used for, just don't know where to find it.

I just emailed the RimGuard company and asked for the locations nearest my zip code. You do have to be prepared to drive for it, the places that sell it are pretty far between still. The going rate is anywhere between $3 and $5 a gallon.

... just don't know where to find it.

 

You could try your local Case/IH or John Deere dealers.

 

Or, better yet, just give the folks at Rim Guard a call.  They will be glad to tell you where the closest dealer to you is located.
