|Curt Wells, Jerry’s Tire Co. (Lake Odessa, MI)As far as I’m concerned they can take the 5,000 gallon tank out and replace it all with Rim Guard®. The men like it because it doesn’t burn their hands and doesn’t shrink or destroy their leather shoes or gloves.The cost of operation with Rim Guard® is much better since it doesn’t rust out the service trucks like Calcium Chloride did. The faster everyone switches to Rim Guard® the better for the dealer, user and environment.We have piles of new rims for our customers since the Calcium & Magnesium Chlorides rust out the metal. That won’t happen with Rim Guard®.

I had blisters on my hands working with Calcium Chloride. It cleared up after switching to the Rim Guard® product. I no longer sell the Calcium Chloride. I serviced 30 of an orchard’s tractors to remove Calcium Chloride and fill them back up with Rim Guard® for environmental reasons. Farmers like it because it washes right off if there is a leak.
I love that it is safe to handle for people and safe around livestock. I have Rim Guard® in all 4 tractors. Rim Guard® is also heavier then Calcium Chloride and it cleans up easy.
Since 1996, everyone has been happy with Rim Guard®. It cleans up easy and doesn’t destroy the lawns if there is a puncture. Since it doesn’t rust the trucks, I get much more service life.
One day, my cell phone fell into a container of Rim Guard®. I thought it was finished. But I rinsed it off and it worked. I’m still using it today.
I don’t have to put in as much Rim Guard® to equal as much Calcium Chloride in weight. It’s heavier then CaCl and excellent with compact and subcompact tractors. No one has ever said it froze in the winter. People also like that there are no problems with spills.
Farmers know about the weight-difference advantage. Rim Guard® gave the business a super boost to service sales. I also saved a large amount of money since we no longer have equipment and truck damage.
We at Rim Guard, Inc. would like to extend a special thank you to the great folks at Capital Equipment & Supply Kubota in Lansing, J & B Tire Service, D & G Equipment John Deere in Mason and to everyone here for their contributions to our Web site.

Four years ago, the talk about loading tractor tires was commonly referred to as "Beet Juice™". We knew what Calcium Chloride was and had to be a thing of the past. It was about this time that one of our customers, Jon Smith, told me that I needed to call his high school buddy Glen Daly. The rest is history.
In the past, we needed to truck our new Kubotas to our local tire dealers. The tire dealer would then charge us for a dismount, new tube, mount and, of course, the cost of the Calcium Chloride. A large R-4 tire would cost us approximately $300 for the pair. We would pass this cost on to our customer for no profit and would eat the cost for the delivery and pick up at the tire dealer.
We now do the work ourselves and pass on substantial savings to our customers. The customers like the price,and the tree huggers love the environmental safety.
Thank you, Glen Daly (for inventing and developing Rim Guard®) and thank you, Jon Smith, for the referral.
