Need to know want is the best way to keep the front tires on the rim? When we are out mud ridding and if I don't hit a mud hole just write the tire will pop right off the rim. It really gets old also everytime that I pull through a mud hole and goose it the tire comes off again and I really need to know what the best way to keep the thing on. THANKS!

25'bighorns...any less and we tear the sidewalls out and pop them off the bead...i have stock sport wheels..beadlocks are nice but in the tight wood that lip will catch **** and about break your hand when it jerks the wheel..my 2 cents

hey gator ...just a thought i had this morning....is it possable that you have 1 or more slow leaks?...so if the psi is right at your house and buy the time you get out on the trails you have lost some air?....especialy? if you loose your bead alot in a mud hole sounds like a good chance for a dirty bead...and slow leak.....if you have them all even at the house and let it sit....any loose air?

Thanks Guys,
And I forgot to tell you were in W.V( LOGAN COUNTY). Guys thanks for all the advice but I have tryed all that and the tire still pops off the front side bend. The rim I'm runing is a ITP with 5 odd round holes in it ( IT CAME ON THE RHINO WHEN I BOUGHT IT) and it is just the front ones that do it.

Gator...its hard to say... now...but i'd bet that the ITP wheels are made in china?...and the ITP Tires are made in china like everything else?....maybe you got a bad tire or wheel or both?....try and find a new set from someone to borrow..like james HR...sence you are going to wv to hatfield....if other wheels work good?...then you know?...
