Rim Guard
Beet Juice Tire Ballast

Your customers rely on you for expert tractor and tire service. To bolster tractor safety, add Rim Guard, the world’s leading beet juice tire ballast, for quick and easy tire fills.

This natural ballast, derived from a byproduct of sugar beet production, is the heaviest, safest, most non-corrosive ballast on the market.

Because it’s non-corrosive, we don’t go through many rims, which is a savings for our customers. If a rim has been damaged from calcium and needs to be replaced, it can be expensive, and some rims are hard to find or unavailable. This means getting them custom made which is expensive and time consuming.

We load tires on big trucks that operate in environmentally sensitive areas.  If they had a leak, there is no concern about harming the environment because Rim Guard is a natural product that is made from sugar beets.

When Rim Guard says their product is non-corrosive, they are correct! We have installed Rim Guard… and years later we have pulled the tire down to find the rim is still just as polished as it was when the Rim Guard was installed.

Installation of Rim Guard is easy and a big improvement over calcium chloride because there is no mixing required, which saves time. When you are mixing calcium, your skin is exposed to the product, which is very hard on your skin, clothes and equipment…and if you have a cut on your hand, you will know it!

We live in hilly terrain and filling tires with RG puts the weight lower than if you had iron weights bolted on the wheel.  It makes the tractor much more stable, which is very important when working on side hills.

We have seen an increase in sales due to Rim Guard being a green product. Customers love the idea. In addition, we’ve found that beet juice is less than or equal in cost to chloride by the time you add labor to the mix. Rim Guard is also a great company to work with.

Rim Guard is the heaviest non-corrosive tire fill option.  When people load their tires, they want the most weight possible. Windshield washer fluid is 30% lighter than Rim Guard. Comparing the same number of gallons of each, they are getting 30% more weight with Rim Guard.

Spills are not going to kill vegetation and Rim Guard is water-soluble, so it can be easily washed down with water and won’t hurt the environment.

Before Rim Guard, I did very little service at the many local equipment dealers in my area. Once I got my foot in the door installing Rim Guard, my sales went up considerably, not only from ballasting tires on new tractors, but also from referrals for flat repair work. Rim Guard and tire service go hand in hand.

I enjoy working with the company. The employees are friendly, service oriented, and address any questions in a very timely manner.

Beet Juice Is Better

Traditional ballasts contain calcium chloride, glycerin, methanol or propylene glycol that may require special precautions, cause rust, be a danger to livestock or even be flammable. Wouldn’t it be better to use a ballast that’s effective, safer and easy-to-sell?
