Perfect timing since I'm finally going to be replacing the tubes in my tires and am planning on getting them filled back up with rimguard after I clean and paint the rims of course and find somewhere to dispose of the old calcium chloride
Hi Bob, I have your product in my tires and the question is.... is it beet juice or not.lol
My dealer (classic tire in Barclay Md.) seems to think its a by product of molasses but i know most on here call it beet juice.
Now that Rim Guard is a site supporter, maybe they can hook us guys up with options to buy Rim Guard by the gallon. We were just having a disscussion in another thread about the dealer flat "Installation Fee" some charge no matter how many gallons are put in. They want to charge $100 to put 12 gallons of Rim Guard in lawn tractor tires, and the same $100 to fill much larger tires. The install fee being twice what the cost of the Rim Guard is puts potential buyers off from buying the product. not many people want to pay $46.20 for 12 gallons of Rim Guard and then pay $100 to have it put in. If there was a way for people to buy the product by the gallon directly from Rim Guard, that would be a very welcome thing. As it is now, you are at the whim of the local dealer rather or not they will sell it to you by the gallon as a DIY project.
Yes the install fee has me stopped until I find a dealer that will sell it by the gallon and I put it in.
Side note, Rimguard with a Slime type product so if we get a puncture it will not all leak out!:fing32:
It would appear Rim Guard just has normal growing pains setting up their dealer network. Word of the good ones will circulate quickly and they will flourish. The ones overcharging will catch on over time. Frequently big dealerships have so much overhead that minimum charges are necessary just to keep the doors open. Bigger isn't always better, my local one man lawn mower shop under prices the big chains on most things.
I just had 28 gallons put in the tires on my Bolens 1502. Total cost with tax was $171.28. We only have one dealer close by who has Rim Guard so I was stuck paying his price.
I did learn that with no weight on the drive wheels it was hard to plow.
