That is a very heavy car over 3500 pounds with only 45% rear. Wow. I don't know why your car is rolling the tire off the rim. Possible because of all the high weight and all the body roll. I would look at the quality of your rims. I am assuming that you can't run a beadlock so try an extreme bead wheel or something like that.
