BTW did you know when you mix water and calcium flakes you get heat, the stuff gets hot.

Calcium can be added to concrete when it needs to set up quicker (patching on the interstate) or when its poured in cold temps.

True or False
I have been told a few times that calcium in tires that do not have tubes will only rust the rim if the rim is exposed to air.
In other words if the rim is submerged 100% in calcium it will not rust.
True or False???

False. I had 160 lb. of calcium in each of my 26x12-12s, about 2" above the rim according to the frost line. Fourteen year old rims are toast, and that's the second set at about the same life. Both sets were totally submerged.
