    Default tire loading

    i have read a lot about tire loading on this site. i don't remember any discussion involving Propylene Glycol. this is used for RV antifreeze. i can get enough to load my tires for about $2.00 a gallon. is there any reason i should not use this to load my tires?

    It certainly isn't as heavy as CalCh or Rimguard. But if it is heavy enough to do what you want to, go for it. It isn't toxic, so it's better than radiator antifreeze or washer fluid. I went with -35 washer fluid because I found it at $2/gal. But I think this would be better.

    I agree with the others, but, if you are only buying it because of the price. You might want to check around, as I only paid $2.00 a gallon for Rimguard. YMMV!

    I used it in my L3400, I put it in my self.. It is good, non toxic, non corrosive, and at $2.00 per gallon, I say go for it. It looks like strawberry soda... keep the drinking down to reasonable amounts though.. Rimguard is closer to $4 per gallon around here IF you can find it at all. It is a regional thing, cheap in some places and not cheap at all around here.

    Why? Add wheel & suitcase weights!! Ag tractors are not loading anymore, especially those running radials.

    We use a tractor to load tires on a truck.

    I have Rimguard. Live very near a sugar beet processing facility. Me thinks the two go together.
