thoughts on using ''rim guard''

thinking about loading the back tires with ''rim guard''[beet juice] for weight on my 185.
31 gallons will give me 332# per tire to counter balance the snow blower on the front and its available locally.
the previous owner had no weight at all and was getting stuck even with chains.

The additional weight will make a big difference this winter. Im not sure of the cost compared to hanging iron but liquid ballast is usually a good choice in my opinion.

The only complaint I have ever heard about Rim Guard is that when you need to replace the tires in 10 or 15 years the smell is terrible.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
