Maybe it's just how you worded it but it sounds like you're warning about anti-freeze mixed with water causing more rust than CaCl, which is also mixed with water and is a salt, so CaCl is actually much more corrosive. Green antifreeze is made to be mixed with water in a 50-/50 mix and also has rust inhibitors designed for that mixture ratio, and since you get the best freeze protection from that same 50/50 ratio, odds are that any used antifreeze that came out of an old tire was mixed that way as well.

Rim Guard is not beet juice. It is a byproduct of extracting sugar from beets. It is beet juice minus the sugar, plus some chemical that they use in the sugar extraction process. It still has water in it, as all fruit and vegetable juices have water in them, and it can cause rust, but it is nowhere near as corrosive as CaCl. If Rim Guard is installed correctly and the air space is filled with nitrogen instead of regular air then there is no oxygen available to cause rust, but if it leaks the wheels can rust, but only about the same amount as from rainwater on your rims, not as drastically as with CaCl.
