He talks about the wrinkle in the tire originating from the screw positions, which makes me wonder if this has an effect on tire longevity? What I mean is that if you're stressing those points in the cord, then eventually they're going to "give up" and either break or stretch out. So since I don't run screws, would that mean that my sidewalls should last a lot longer becasue that stress is across the entire area of the sidewall? That would make'em sorta act like a bead lock which does the same thing? :-k

That makes sence to me. No screw or bead locks, longer sidewall life.
