When I had my Bullet Bird with the standard rims, I didn't lose any but they were moving and cutting into the tire valve. What I did was with a center punch, punched a few indentations just in from the rim, & from memory it did the trick. Others also put a couple of tack welds.

Bend the tabs or "teeth" as I call them, back out some. Also try using a file on the points. This will help to give them a better "bite" inside the steel wheel.

I tried all the tricks and it works to a point. Now I use a rubber mallet every week to make sure these are tight.
