Having no experience with running screws into a tire bead, you can take this with a grain of salt, but I wouldn't drill into the bead of the tire. Drilling may break one of the strands of wire in the bead, which couldn't be a good thing. Just drill the rim, and then slowly run the screw into the bead, allowing the screw to gently work its way between the strands of wire in there without breaking any of them.
