Anyone thought of using bead lock screws on the factory rims????

Just an idea, bad or good?? I used to use bead lock screws back in the day for drag racing/slicks...just drill holes around the rims, seal the holes and lock the beads in place....any thoughts????
Used to keep my 1100hp sbf from ripping the 10" slicks of the rims...

It really wouldn't work like your thinking. The screw through the rim trick was to keep the rim from spinning in the tire under hard launches. You would not ever get enough traction to have this happen on the XX. Second it would not benefit you in anyway like what an actual bead lock is intended for. A beadlock rim is used to lower tire pressure and keep the tire from unseating.

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

just a thought...it may help by keeping the beads seated against the rim, even under lower pressures, as well as adding strength in hard turns...trying to pull the beads off the rims....
I think I'm gonna end up going to 10" rims on the rears anyways...
