So the Deestone's are ordered and I'm considering filling them with washer fluid. About how much do you thing I will need to fill a set of 23x8.50-12's. Five gallons a tire be enough? Really don't know.
But at what cost? And where is it available?Water based fluids are roughly 8 lbs./gal. so you are looking at 40 lbs. per tire.
Personally, I'd recommend Rim Guard.
It's a beet juice based product and weighs roughly 11 lbs./gal. That would give you 55 lbs. per tire.
Check with your nearest JD dealer, I'm pretty sure Schenkelberg carries it. My friend bought a new JD and finally got it in July (Worthington, MN) and got the tires loaded. Salesman told him they are sending 80-90% of new and used tractors out the door with the rims loaded. Apparently JD hasn't realized steel prices tanked, and their wheel weights shouldn't be priced like they're made of brass.But at what cost? And where is it available?
I'm a stayin neutral on the colors and all, but I gotta say that last sentence was damn funny!!!!!!!I am not a fan of JD. They are way to proud of their green paint. I have a JD F525 front deck mower. The deck drive belt from JD is $118. It is $60 from NAPA. JD also sells Stihl chain saws, but they have to order everything as they stock nothing but the sign. One of their mechanics buys his stuff from another Stihl dealer and pays retail which is cheaper then through his dealer with a discount. So what does that tell you. Nothing runs like a deer - - or smells like a John.
