Looks a bit weird, but hey presto, no balancing issues and no slippage, even with really low pressures.

It works for me - YMMV.
I'm curious about doing that. Are the screws just short enough that they don't go through the tire? Gotta get that right or puncture the tube, I would think. Do they hit just out board of the bead? Or go right at it? Thanks.
