Flat Tires!!!!!

So heres the deal... I currently run 35x12.50 SS truxs on M/T Sidebiters. Everytime I wheel I air down to 15-18psi and constantly am getting shit packed in the outside bead of all my wheels. Next morning come out and at least 2 tires are low to almost flat. First time I paid to have all the beads cleaned out and sealed and from there on forward I pull the wheels myself and with a couple of Prybars I pry the bead down enough to clean them.

So, am I the only one? I have been thinking of getting some wider tires to maybe set the rim in a lil more...and why not then upgrade to 37's Will this help? I am tired of muscleing these things around after every wheelin trip.

No experience with those tires but when this happened to 2 of my old Toyos I brought the Jeep in to Discount Tire and they cleaned out the bead for free under their free flat repair policy no matter if you bought the tires from them or not. I have always gone to them when I needed a flat repaired on any vehicle since they do it for free.

Your not special, that is what happens when you air down. I run double bead locks and shit still gets in the bead. If you don't like it either run a higher pressure or stay out of the shit.

Some build info here:

I run usually run 11-13psi in my tires when I'm offroad and haven't had that issue. (325/70R17 Wild peaks on Level 8 ZX wheels - Unlimited TJ) Wheeling out here in the southwest is a lot different than where you wheel though. 15-18 is a decent amount of pressure for off road really. I wonder if it has something to do with the bead design of the tire or the bead seat on your wheels. Beadlocks could be one solution but you could also try another tire.

I've gotten junk in the bead before, but never to the point of causing a leak. I run about 10psi.
