    However in the top end of radial racing double beadlocks are used to stretch out tyres to get maximum tread use out of restricted tyre sizes. x235 guys use up to 15x10, x275 15x12 or 15x14

      i've seen plenty of tires come off rims when wheeling, it happened to me when i first got my jeep. never seen an inner rim dismount with beadlocks, and I don't worry about mine. I run 5-6psi or there abouts, sometimes it's got a bit lower when crawling. I'd imagine what marty said is right, its tough for it to come off the rim without spinning somewhat.

        As others have said the outer bead is under alot more stress than the inner. Some rim designs are suspectable to dropping the inner bead tho, like allied savannahs

          Generally speaking, offroad its the outside bead that is the first to go. Remove that as a problem and loosing the inside bead is far less likely.
