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.

I have the rim guard brand of beet juice in the rear tires of my 4700. there is 110 gallons giving 1210 pounds of ballast.
I Figured I didn't need it in the front tires. Maybe someday I'll know that I want it in the fronts, but I figured I could live without it for now. $3.80 per gallon for the Rimguard here.

After hearing your valve core troubles I sure hope that I don't have problems with them.
at $6 a pop for the valve stems, lets hope the 'AIR/WATER' part means they are specially designed for liquids and don't corrode.
