    Rimgaurd Overfilled

    I just had a new set of all four HDAP tires loaded with rimgaurd by a local dealer. They clearly filled the tires above the valve stem at the 12 o'clock position as doing anything with the valve creates a mess with pressurized beet juice. The fronts seem to be over filled or over inflated (likely both) as they are rock hard. I just ordered a air/liquid tire gauge to confirm.

    How does one bleed these down without huge mess? I'm assuming that I need to jack up the tractor, rotate the valve stem to 12 o'clock, remove the valve core, and let it fly. Is this the best way to do this?

    Tractor is a 1026R.

    IMHO,,it all depends on the pressure in the tire,,
    If rock hard, and less than 5 psi,, add a little air,, the tire will get softer,,

    There is nothing wrong with the tire being VERY full (above the stem) other than the need for a little cushion air.

    Let's assume the tire is over-inflated. I want to bleed it down.

    Question 1 - you don't. It is gonna be a huge mess.

    Question 2 - normally yes. The let it fly part, see answer to question 1.

    Question 3 - No. Take them back to whomever filled them and let them deal with it.


    If you do get into this "mess". Rim Guard / beetjuice smells (actually stinks) and is very sticky. Don't wear anything you care about. Don't do this in the garage. Keep your mouth closed - tightly.

    One last thing - we want video.

    I agree with the above but if you want to try it, I would get the valve stem to about an 11 or 2 position so it's pointing somewhat down. Position your catch basin on a stool or something that can be hosed down. Then cover your hands and the valve stem with something like an old t shirt so when you take the valve stem out working blind, hopefully the mess will run into the basin.

    As you said, if you jack it up it will take some of the pressure off. It's still going to be a mess. If possible, I'd try to do it where I didn't care, like the edge of the woods.

    Oh, yeah- take a couple of spare valves with you in case one or two get lost before you can re-install it.

    My rear tires were seriously overfilled (at least in my opinion) with water only, and I wanted it out. I rotated my tires so the stems were in the 6 o’clock position (outdoors away from everything) and unscrewed the stems. That water shot out, and sprayed everywhere. I think it took something like 30 minutes even with the weight of the tractor for most everything to purge. I can only imagine how bad it would’ve been if it were rim guard instead of water. Next time it’s in for service I’ll have them pull the tires and get the rest of it out.

    If it is a rubber valve stem, I wonder if you could clamp it with some needle nose pliers while removing the core? It at least get you out of the line of fire....
