I heard of the permatex. also indian head gasket cinch, 3m weather seal bead lock and so on.... I guess bead lock is the way to go if you have the money. =; Ours moves a little bit but but not enough to worry about.

hi Barry

i have Goodyear's comming, all going well i will have them buy the end of the week

as for the Trailer i left it as we had a few family issues here & have decided to complete the car first & then get back into the trailer

the good news is the car is only about 3 weeks away from being completed

I also use the dish wash liquid on the inside of the tires, and it works. As Barry noted, I squirt a little at a time inside then take a cleaning brush and spread it out, repeat until the entire inside of the tire is coated. I only use one coat and I've also never waited for that to dry. I just go ahead and mount'em when I get through coating them.

Oh, and good to see ya back Rod! I was beginning to worry about'cha! Was afraid you'd gone the same route as Ash454 and a couple of others from down under! \:D/

So do you apply this stuff the same way as the dish soap?

Here is the article about rims screws and bead locks from FSC Mag. it is a good article.

The article is timing the turns. It starts out talking about degreeing a cam but that is a lead in. :-s

It is a good mag. We get it every month being a member of the NMCA. The on line version is about a month or 2 behind the printed one. I thought it was real interesting. You see guys pulling to the left or right and can't figure it out. It could be that simple.

Here is the link to the site, so you can check out others. Just go to the FSC archive link.
