Tire slipping on stock wheels

Has anyone else had any issues with tires spinning on the stock wheels? I have a 2014 3/4 ton... 60 hp injectors, s465 turbo, redline built tranny, and efi tuning... Haven't had it on a dyno but id guess around 550 to the wheels. Had issues for a long time with balancing, there out of balance every time I take it in which is fairly often so I marked the rim and tire and in a couple hundred miles daily driving and towing they've moved 4 inches already. Have one set of steel wheels and one allow both 18" with different brands of tires and both move.

And, does whoever mounts your tires use lube on the tire bead?

Mostly because of low tire pressures, I have the same thing going on with my Jeep.
With the tires marked, I let them go up to 45 degrees (not much street driving), then switch them side to side.
Repeat as needed.

Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?

75psi rears 65psi front... Just the rears slipping and no, no lube. Tried beads and hated them, they worked for a little while but then got moisture from condensation maybe Idk, but they didn't work... Would like to try some aftermarket wheels but not if they are gonna slip too. Doesnt seem like I should have an issue with 600 or less rwhp. Got friends running duramaxs with 700 hp and no issues which is what made me wonder if it could be the ram wheels

Pony up for some bead lock wheels then.

Ya that is an option, but it seems ridiculous to me that a street truck with under 600 hp needs bead locks. There only 295/70r18. Shouldn't they break loose before rotating on wheel? I could understand if I had some serious width going on. How can guys run 12 inch wide wheels with serious tires and never have an issue?

Its very hard for the bead to slip with normal tire pressures. I would guess that the shop who installed them used a lubricant which isnt drying or something they shouldnt be using. Have them mounted dry...

How does this help? Many many trucks are at or beyond 600hp on stock wheels with out this problem.
OP have you tried breaking down the wheel and cleaning the bead to be sure there isnt any issue?
