    Anyone heard of Citrastar tire ballast?

    I want to have my tires filled and our local tire service uses Citrastar. I looks really good on paper, same concept as Rimguard (beet juice) but citrus based so it doesn't ferment and can be pumped back out if you no longer want it.

    As good as it sounds, I've never heard of it before. Do any of you have any experience with it?

    Here is the website:

    Yes, I have that in my rear tires.

    Keep in mind, it is a calcium chloride based ballast with citrus fragrance and a rust inhibitor added.

    What are the implications of that? Is it corrosive?

    The rust inhibitor is supposed to stop the damage to the wheels, other than that I really know nothing about it, only that it was recommended by Rick's Tire.

    I take it you haven't had any issues? Are you worried about corrosion at all?

    I didn't realize it was calcium chloride. Rust inhibitor or no, that makes me nervous. It would take years to see the damage done to the wheels if it is being done.

    Wait, hang on..calcium chloride is highly toxic/hazardous. This stuff claims to be environmentally friendly and non-toxic. How can it be calcium chloride if it's non-toxic?

    Not sure, but drill into that MSDS and it tells you what it's all about.

    Just did. Answer is simple. They're lying. It's toxic.
