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.
Rumor has it there is a new product out to compete with beet juice that is as good, cheaper, similar weight, and not sticky..
There are several dozen competitors. Apparently there is a lot of interest in this stuff. A company out of NY makes "Citrastar" which is very similar to beet juice but it's made using citrus fruit waste.

Of you have a Rural King nearby, I paid like $2.65 per gallon of beat juice. Some RKs sell beat juice with their new tractors. I bought enough for front and rear tires. I think I paid less than $80 after buying their buckets, bucket lids, and tape. I took it home to do it myself.
You need the tape to hold down the bucket lids.. RK bucket lids suck.
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.
Another question. Did any of you fluid fill your fronts?
