Come on. Do you think I measured the screws. Be happy that I remembered what brand the were!!

Even on a regular Bogart my tubes never leaked.

Tire screw with no tubes started to leak as soon as I went down to 16 psi. This happened overnight. It wasn't quick.

I am thinking of doing 1/8"+ of washers with mine so it won't go completely through the wheel/tire combo. I miced .625 thickness for my wheel/tire combo so I am going to do .600 ish worth of screw.

I'll check closer... almost positive the outside of the rim looked good as I spun it, but it could be an inside edge problem. My Weld rims seem to be tougher than the previous Bogarts and closer tolerances, plus I install them at the track.... so no road damage possible unless a LCA came in contact with the rim.

I had a good burnout and was staged forever while my competition took his sweet time on 1 pass, so maybe just one side of the tire cooled off and distorted it? I'll have to throw it on a balancer and check the runout #s closer and maybe call Hoosier afterwards if nothing points to the rim.

You can always grind the screws down a little so they don't poke through the tire bead. Just recently did this on a friends Chevelle.

Well if you grind a 1/4" off then you have no tip, hows the screw start itself in the tire?

Start them, pull them out, cut them, then rethread? Sounds good to me. Or just but 1/4" shorter tire screws, if available.

I have looked for 1/2" screws...none for the application, but I am not sure you need grade 8, there shouldn't be much load on them, the air pressure holds the bead for the most part. But its not easy to find 1/2" long screws either that have a nice coarse thread and will work.
