I used to screw my M/T drag radials to my 10x15 rims. The rims where already screwed from racing in the early 90's. If you don't pre-drill the radials sometimes the screw will strip itself in the rim - the steel cords are tough in those tires. Once I accidently drilled all of the way through the tire to the inside and it was almost impossible to get it to seal again after that - wanted to leak through the bead.

Now I have 2 sets of 10x15 rims with 315 Hoosiers mounted on one set and M/T 295/65/15 mounted on the other set. I've gone to mounting them without screws or hi-tack. The M/T tires seem to move a little each pass, the Hoosiers move initially but seem to stop after a small amount of movement.

I don't bother balancing the tires anymore and haven't noticed the difference.

I haven't bothered on the last few sets I've put on. Doesn't make much sense if the tire rotates on the rim. Haven't noticed it driving down the track or highway.

Speaking as someone who has mounted these, you do NOT use a tube... The guy is a moron.
