Wheels Spinning inside tire.

i know beadlocks is the real answer for this question, and they are in the plans just not at the moment.

I am having issues of spinning the wheel inside my tires when aired down, would a bead sealer help with this issue or is there another trick to get it to stop?

i started out wheeling at 8PSI, then bumped up to 12 to try and stop it. anytime i get in a bind with all the weight on the rear of the vehicle i can't go anywhere because the tires are not spinning.

I air down to 4 PSI at the Dunes and the tires spin on the rims also. A friend tried RTV and bead sealer with poor results. He had 12" then 10" wheels. This is with BFG all Terrains and my GY MTRs. Those Swampers you run are hard as a rock so they have even less grip to the wheel.
