Has anyone ever run a non lock Aero wheel on the rr without pulling the bead off the rim? I've done it on smooth tracks, but what about hard bumpy tracks?

everyone who ran IMCA before beadlocks were legal . You have to use more air pressure to try and and keep the tire on the rim when you hit a rut

I was told by an "oldtimer" to run a bead of weatherstrip adhesive around the bead, and let it set up before running the wheel/tire. I don't know if it works or not. Didn't try it because it sounded like it would be too hard to get the tire back off the rim. Guess that's the idea, though, Right?

MRW? Might sound clueless, but I haven't heard of them. Who sells 'em?
Thanks for the replies folks, reason I was asking was I want to play around with offsets on the RR but I don't want to buy alot of different beadlocks just to try maybe once. Know what I mean?

Bassett wheels has an extreme bead we used to run before IMCA said NO. They were tough to bead up and to dis-mount. Way too much air pressure required to bead them.
