I have been hearing about this duct tape thing, guess I will have to try it. I even have some double sticky duct tape I could put on for the last layer. And Yes I have also recently heard that not all tires are sized right, and not all rims are sized right, my rims really only measure 14 7/8".

I don't know if the double stickie would be a good idea, it may want to stick to the tire and bunch up when seating the beads.

The tape works though.

X3 on duct tape. I just had to swap some tires around tried to break the back bead myself hilift under the tow rig. Couldnít do it. By the series of events I had to take two different tires to different tire shops. Dropped them off and when I picked them up they both comment how hard it was to bust the bead. One they actually had put a slight bend in the wheel trying to get it closer to the bead because they couldnít break it.

I think a 12.50 tire on a 10Ē wheel with duct tape inner and outer would hold in 99% of circumstances.

double sticky wont let you set the bead, you still have to use some lube.

I did 4 wraps on my pitbulls.... 60-70lbs seating them was a little dicey

I did 2 wraps on inner and outer bead on my STS and ran them last weekend hard, on sidehills, at 1psi and had zero issues

Be careful, there was a guy I read somewhere who did 6 wraps and ended up splitting the bead on a 43 or 47

When the snow gets heavier I bet it's going to want to push the outside bead off. But it's definitely worth a shot.

My buddy is running 43 sx on 17s with just tape. He has been running like 2-3 lbs in the rocks to get them to break in. Last trip one bead on the front slipped in like 3/8" while going down hill through a bolder patch. It wasn't even leaking actually, we just added some air to pop in back on.

So I guess that may be another benefit, the beads don't want to just pop, they have more give.
