A Different Tire Ballast Solution
Add it to your tires, and you’ll experience increased traction, stability, and pulling power for vehicles or off-road heavy machinery. Compared to the cast iron weights traditionally used for weighing down tires, liquid ballasting tends to be less expensive and easier to manipulate to achieve the ideal balance.
Bio-Ballast® is USDA-certified, 100 percent organic and safe for use on organic farms. “We are the second generation of organic tire ballast, with the first being a by-product of the sugar beet industry,” says William Bebb, the Bio-Ballast® lead sales associate.
Since the solution is biodegradable, it’s safe for use around humans, animals, and plants. Explains Bebb, “Today’s environmentally-conscious owners and operators are turning their attention towards what happens if a catastrophic tire failure happens in the garden, field, feedlot, or construction site. We do not want something leaking out that will damage crops, livestock, equipment, or the environment. Many of the products in use today cannot meet those specifications.”
Bio-Ballast® can be mixed with other liquid ballast products without creating viscosity issues. It’s safe for use in both tubes and tubeless tires and will keep their inner liners soft and pliable. The formula remains slush-free down to -30 F and won’t foam when pumped.
At publication, Bio-Ballast® is sold by dealers across North America. Pricing for Bio-Ballast® varies based on purchase location and shipping logistics. Speaking directly with your local dealer will give you the best price estimate.
