Fluid filled tires

For those of you that went with fluid filled rears, did you use beat juice or something else and why? I ordered a set of wheel weights when I bought the 2038r but they were and are still on back order. Im thinking of just cancelling the wheel weight order and going fluid filled. My dealer uses beet juice which I think os what rimguard is. Local tire place uses methanol which is about half the price of the rim guard. Dealer wants price per gallon and $104 labor to do both wheels. Tire place is a flat $6/gallon.

just my 2 cents....

I went with add on weights. I think fluid filled tires are a good idea for some, it's weight that's down low, often an advantage.

BUT - it's also weight that you can't get off easy. Like - I don't want that extra weight when I mow - the tractor is already 1500 lbs on the lawn.

When I need ballast, I can add it with suitcase weights - then lose it when I want to be lighter, to perform some other task.
