I have saw an article stating how many to use per 1/8 et and trap speed but nothing saying too many. I just got done with my wheels and their new 16 holes. All are straight across from each other and I will tap each hole since I am already started without the tires on and such. So can there bee too many is what I am wondering. Hoping for 11.4 out of it this year and mods are in my signature.

So you drilled 8 holes per side of the wheel? Might be a little much compared to others I've seen with cars faster than your level; ultimately the result of whether the tire moves on the rim or not is your main concern.
Damn that auto correct on my iphone POS is retarded. Thing turned bogarts into whatever that work is LOL.
I phone, supposedly so smart.. well let me tell you if the spellcheck was 1/2 as smart as they try to tell you it is, then shouldn't it be putting in a word that makes sense? Or just leave it red so you'll notice it, and correct it yourself?
Off my rant now.
For the record, I will say that I always put a layer of liquid dish soap on the inside of the tires before mounting them, and I put it on heavy and let it dry. This helps stop the tire itself from leaking air.
The 18192 hoosiers that are now on my car are mounted on a sander double beadlock wheel, and in 6 months never leaked down at all. Dbl beadlocks FTW!
8 screws per side (16 per wheel) is pretty much the standard and will work well. I have 16 per side and 32 per wheel on mine and it has never given me an issue going as quick as 1.022 60'.

I just got sick and tired of the screws leaking air.. and even more sick and tired of having a tire monkey bend my wheels every time the tires were changed... solution: Sander Engineering double beadlocks! They're WAY cheaper then a weld, and everyone I know that's used them has had zero issues. Wheels are SFI approved as well.
8 per side here as well. Used the Dawn dish soap trick and they leak about a pound a week while on the car. No tubes

12 per side is what Mickey Thompson recommends. I bought the template and run 16 a side with tubes made my 60ft more consistent and was worth at least .05 from no screws at all depending on the application. I know that's what I gained.
