Tires with messed up beads screwed onto the rims? I mean drilling the rim, placing 7 to 10 short screws thru the rim into, but not thru the tire's bead, Unsure if it would hold air without assistance, and wouldn’t trust it to wheel, tire is very good tread, hints my conundrum,
My local tire shop tried changing them for me before realizing they had bead locks, he did a number to the bead, :withstupid: feedback?... B…

Based on nothing more than a "best guess", I can't imagine that working. I certainly wouldn't do it unless it's a trail only rig. Is the tire shop unwilling to make it right. From what you said, sounds like they are at fault.

Yes its off-road use only, only reason I ask is I see it all the time on dragsters tires...
Small town shop, young kid doing the work, besides the look on his face was punishment enough...
Plus it wasn’t a brand new tire, it has wheeling scars already… B...

the tire shop screwed them up, make them replace the tires!


I've only seen screwed tires/rims on drag racing applications, and i don't think its as common as it use to be?
