I attended an off road riding clinic a number of years ago put on by the then Canadian National Enduro Champion Allan Lachappelle.He was and is an amazingly talented rider and teacher but unfortunately I seem to lack the ability to duplicate his techniques
Anyway,during the course of this he showed us his tire changing method.What he had done on his KTM was to grind down the brake side of his rim (with the wheel spinning to make it equal)This allowed the tire to be removed from this side much more easily.He then got rid of the rim locks and drilled and tapped the rim for sharpened set screws much like the old Can Ams.This was common practice apparently for those that had to make quick tire changes.He never had any troubles with this set up and he certainly would have given it a hard trial.

Can-Ams ran Sun rims with the bead teeth - I have now idea if they still make them

Neat trick - grinding down the rim...
