Has anyone used "Rim Guard" fluid for weight addition to tractor tires? Is it better than Calcium Chloride? more Expensive? Ron

It weighs less than calcium and is not corrosive like calcium. It's also not available everywhere, or at least it wasn't when I wanted to buy it.

Calcium Chloride solution can be 15 pounds per gallon. That is why it is used even though it is corrosive if it leaks. I use the CaCl mixture.

I don't see much point in using a lighter fluid. The lighter fluids can be less than half the weight of CaCl. Fluid loaded tires don't ride as well as air filled tires, so if I was not using calcium, I would simply use iron weights.

Those RimGuard numbers don't seem right from previous research I've done, but the Canadian site that has the tables isn't working well for me right now. CaCl concentrations of more than 5 lbs/gallon are likely possible adding weight.

Ron, you said CaCl weighs 10.2 lbs/gal at the five pound rate. What am I missing here? A gallon of water weighs over eight pounds itself. When you add 5 pounds of CaCl to it, where does the other 3 pounds go?

I can't tell if you guys are kidding. So to risk looking dense, I'll let anyone else know who was unsure where the other 3 pounds went. Take a gallon jug of water and fill it up to the top, 1 gallon. Add 5 pounds of CaCl and see if any water runs out. That is where the 3 pounds went.

(I'm kidding when I say) it sounds like you must have a government job. No offense, but a mixing procedure like that is is criminaly inefficient. Without wasting water, put 25 gallons of water in a 55 gallon drum. Add 125 pounds of CaCl. No spillage. Drain out a gallon and weigh it.

I finally found the Canadian CaCl tables I was looking for. After converting imperial gallons to US gallons here's the numbers I get.

At 2.4 lbs CaCl/gal. the solution weighs 10.37 lbs/gal.
At 4.2 lbs CaCl/gal. the solution weighs 11.875 lbs/gal.
At 6 lbs CaCl/gal. the solution weighs 13.3 lbs/gal.

So the RimGuard numbers cited above appear to be wrong.
