    beet juice loaded tires pressure checker

    I have 400# of rimguard beet juice in my rear tires on my 2025r. I check the tires with the valve stems in the top position like you should. But i still get a little juice on/in my pressure checker. I was noticing while check some other tires the other day that the checker is now sticking from the beet juice. Do you guys ever lube your checkers or is there a better style the juice wont gum up?

    I have one of those gauges.

    It still got sticky after checking the Rim-Guard tires on my 2305.


    The tire shop suggested hitting the valve stem with the air chuck (while at 12 o'clock) with a quick shot of air to clear the stem.

    It seemed to work better.

    Now, anyone have any ideas how to fix the sticky gauge that I still have, I'm all ears...

    Check the air pressure a few times in my X585. I used washer fluid not beet juice...

    Somewhere in my shop I've got a "wet" gauge..

    If I remember about $10-12 at the farm supply store..

    The times I've used it, I took it in the house and rinsed it out just because
    it seemed a good idea..

    I used auto anti freeze and washer fluid for tire fill here for my cold winters..

    Good luck..

    I don't have filled tires, but I would try a round/dial type tire gauge. They have a sealed bourdon tube inside and the moving parts are not subjected to the beet juice. As long as the fluid does not harden you should be OK.

    The pencil type gauges have a moving cup inside the tube held by a spring inside. The moving cup is what gets gummed up.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I personally think they are more accurate than pencil types.

    Just more of my 2 cents.
