Default rim screws

I should have mentioned earlier these are not slicks these are mud tires used for mud racing and i am turning them a little each time i race.I don't want to screw them but don't know what else to do.Any other ideas?Thanks

with lots of grip, aggressive tread and low tire pressures like that i would use bead locks. the best place i've seen to get them is from speedway motors. the mudders around here get from them and putem on and have fun in the mud.

dont use them :lol:
Hammertime what do you use? beadlocks? or Hightack? I consisdered using High tack on my new wheels rather than screws....never tried it before though.
I use neither, I mark them to start year and they dont usually turn it they turn i put screws in but more often then not they dont turn. 1.04 60ft best without turning at all, I've seen some turn 1/4 way in 1 pass though. its best to not screw mark then if needed screw
David,
How do you know the tire did not spin 2 1/4 revolutions? Or 3 1/4?
If it only slipped a quarter, I don't see any problem at all. What's a quarter of a rotation...2 feet? Not much in 3280 feet.

I sure he marks the rim and tire. Not using screws makes it alot easier to balance also. My rim and wheel have a magic marker line on the tire to the wheel. It ran all year and moved less than an 1/8 of an inch.

That brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "run it out the back door."
