Weld Drag lites rims

Hey guys, I have a set of Weld drag lites and they currently have Mickey Thomson slicks on them. I noticed the slicks have bolts through them to hold the slicks to the rim, I want to put on regular street tires, but if I remove those bolts there will be holes. I saw a few pictures with plugs in them, where can you get those?

There are holes in the side of the rims, to screw into the tires.....so the slicks do not spin off rims when doing your burn out. I want to put regular street tires on. But I'm wondering if these holes are not plugged with they leak air or will the bead just cover them.

Cindys_SN95, did you have or know of someone in my position and put regular street tires will the holes exposed and the bead sealed and they worked? I have seen on a few other pages others asking the same question and some have answered yes it will still work. Just want to hear from someone who has these rims and it worked. I was thinking of taking a tap and die set and just threading the holes and putting in bolts with lock tight that are just the right length, sound like a good idea?

Yeah, I still have the bolts, just picked up the car 6 hours from my home this past Saturday. It has MT slicks on them but they are screwed to the rim, I was going to get the slicks taken off, sell them, buy some street tires for them. Will do this over the winter. The car was being setup for a dragster, I want to bring it back to a Saturday night cruiser.
