seems like if you don't need them on one side, you wouldn't need them on either side.

I always use to run screws but my 15 inch wide Magnums were too pretty and I didn't drill them. I have mounted 3 sets of slicks so far and I mark the tire and rim. One tire moved about an inch on one rim. I just mounted the 4th set of slicks last night, going racing today. If you run tubes I'd have concerns too. That 1 inch could kill a valve stem. RM

How wide is the wheel?
Screws or Beadlocks on one side only, tend to wear out the swidewalls of the tire WAY sooner than normal, shortening tire life..
If the wheel is 10" width or narrower, you can use "Permetex High Tack" on the beads when you mount the tire.. I've been doing this for about 5 years now, and it definetly works.
This subject has been BEAT TO DEATH on all the message boards..
I learned this out of necessity, 'cause I could never afford Beadlocks..
If you're running a 12" wheel, and a Radial tire, it wont hold. 10"'s and smaller, it works great...
The car we run has 10" wheels, 315 radial tire, stock suspension, and is 3450lbs.. It has run 1.24 60ft... [email protected] 1/8th.... and [email protected] 1/4... No beadlocks... No wheel screws... Only the High Tack glue.... The tires NEVER move on the wheels...

If you screw one side you need to screw the other. Also remember to clock the screws in the same position from side to side.

yeah I would try it and check to see if it moves on the rim badly. If you do run tubes, I would definately suggest running rim screws or bead locks though
