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.

Methanol is similar to water weight. My manual said not to use alcohol based fluids. Yours may be different.
Beet juice is nearly 30% more.
Liquid mercury is 108 lbs per gallon. 😁

You're lucky that you have options. I would have to drive 2 hours 1 way to get to a rimguard dealer. (n)
@MarkEagleUSA did you get metal valve stems put in when you got fluid?
