Beet Juice is Better

rim guard benefits

  • Dramatically improves traction. Most farm tractors, compacts, utility, skid steers, pay loaders, etc. have more pulling power and hydraulic lift capacity than their unballasted weight can effectively use.
  • Rim Guard in tires puts the weight right where you need it — where the tire contacts the ground. It reduces tire wear + improves operating efficiency.
  • Improves stability by lowering the center of gravity of all-terrain sky lifts, forklifts, pay loaders and zero-turn mowers.
  • Acts as counterweight and increases traction + steering control.
  • Enhances the push/pull capabilities of lawn and garden tractors, especially on turf, ice and snow.


Non-Toxic Non-Corrosive Heavy (10.7lbs/gal) -35°F Freeze Point Characteristics
Rim Guard Non-toxic. Non-corrosive. Heavy and weighted at traction point. No tubes or mixing required. Natural product. Environment and livestock friendly.
Calcium Chloride Toxic. Highly corrosive. Weight varies upon person mixing it. Requires tubes. Not safe for the environment or livestock.
Methanol Toxic, corrosive and highly flammable. Can degrade tires. Weighs 35-40% less than Beet Juice Tire Ballast. Should be mixed with water.
Windowshield Washer Fluid Toxic to livestock. Not safe in groundwater. Corrosive. Weighs 25% less than Beet Juice Tire Ballast. Higher freeze point. Tubes needed for safety.
Water Non-toxic. Potential for corrosion and rust. Lighter. Freezes even in mild winter weather. Inconsistent quality and highly variable.
Exterior Weights Changes equipment configurations and center of gravity. Takes up space on axle and frame. Most expensive per pound.
