I was thinking that if drag cars can have screw through the rim into the bead of the tire to keep the rims from spinning inside the tire, why couldn't you do something similar with the inner bead???


https://www.mickeythompsontires.com/...hp?bulletin=s4

MICKEY THOMPSON PROCEDURES FOR SECURING TIRES TO WHEEL ASSEMBLIES

RIM SCREWS OR BEADLOCKS
Mickey Thompson recommends that wheel widths should not exceed 1” wider than the tread width. If you elect to use rim widths 1-2” wider than the tires tread width, M/T strongly suggests increasing the number of rim screws to 16 per side or beadlocks. Beadlocks only are recommended on any wheel widths that exceed 2” wider than the tires tread width or if speeds exceed 200 MPH. Some M/T tires have “Beadlocks Recommended” stamped on the sidewall of the tire.


PROPER INSTALLATION OF RIM SCREWS WITH TUBE TYPE TIRES

1. Begin by drilling 12 equally spaced holes on both the inner and outer flange of the rim. See the diagram 4-A below.

Note: (Mickey Thompson strongly suggests that you use Drag slick mounting screws only, and that you follow the rim screw manufacturers suggested drill bit size.)


2. Trial run the screws through all 24 (32) holes. Running screws in the hole and back out again. A dab of grease on the screw will help.


3. Check for any sharp edges that the screw may have pushed out or caused during the trial run through. If any sharp edges are found de-bur and make sure the inner bead flange of the rim is smooth and clean.


4. Mount tire and tube. Have an experienced professional install the tire and tube on proper equipment. (Refer to Mickey Thompson Tech Bulletin #2 for tube mounting procedures and Mickey Thompson Tech Bulletin # 8 for proper procedures to check rollout (circumference).


5. Before installing the screws, inflate the wheel and tire assembly to 20 psi. Put a small amount of grease on each screw and install into wheel and tire assembly. Deflate assembly to operating pressure. Inspect rim flange and bead area for proper bead seating. If bead is not fully seated, re-inflate and reinstall screws.


6. For best results, static balance or "Bubble Balance" the assembly once screws are installed.


7. Periodically you should check the wheel for loose screws and inspect the rim bead area to be sure that there is no bead area separation.

Note: It would be good practice to inspect after each pass when you are checking your air pressure

Was thinking he only needs it on the inside of the rim as he has weld on beadlocks on the outside. His issues are with the tire not flexing and burping air out when he gets too low.

It was a thought

I just worry about wrecking the bead on a very expensive tire.

On drag cars, the screws are in shear and have the advantage of the air pressure holding the bead to the wheel.
In a side load from being off camber the screw is in tension and is screwed into the rubber bead plus the tire is being pushed away from the wheel.

don't do it beefy. I used 2" barn siding screws on my dually mustache run tires. I felt It was an epic move to boost me to the top. But like steroids it has side effects and its not worth it just for a trophy. I only did one tire and quit because it would not hold air.

do the duct tape thing. run a couple revolutions around the barrel where the safety bead would normally be and then mount tire. it'll hold up decent for some time. should stop from burping for quite a while.

just a cheap thought

What about running 3m super weather stripping adhesive? I ran that on mine all last season and never had an issue with it...

I think if you put your bullshit filter on max scan and go back through the 40+ pages of build there is something in there about him welding around the bead on the inside lip of the rim to help...


Didn't...
