I believe that a larger wheel and less sidewall is what holds your bead, not wheel width. It’s a wheel-to-tire diameter ratio issue. A 20” wheel with a 35” tire will hold bead better than a 17” wheel with 35” tire, at the same PSI.
That's not how it works at all. The less sidewall you have the less flexibility it has and the easier it is to unseat the bead.

Good copy. I will research further.

I used to air down to 6 psi the tires on my 8K lb 4WD van before wheeling out in the sand, and the wheels were wider than recommended by the tire mfr. They were low-profile tires (not tall sidewalls) by today's standards - and I never had one de-bead. I did however air back up as soon as I got back on pavement - I don't know if it's true, but was told running that low a pressure on pavement where the tires would not be able to "slip" like they do on sand, would surely cause them to de-bead.

Was out looking at the back of the 2020 JLUR this morning, and saw something I hadn't realized was on the Jeep. Seems the optional Tailgate Reinforcement has a hole just right (and intended I'm sure) for a flag pole/antenna for off-roading - neat! And (this one was more obvious) the third tail light mounting can actually be moved up (or down) in case you get a larger diameter spare tire - neat.
Makes me wonder what else I haven't found yet!
If I understand your post. You are saying the Mopar Tailgate Reinforcement has the holder. Is that correct? Do you have pictures?

Yes, that's where the flag mounting hole is. Sorry - no pics yet (not with Jeep now).

I ran 315's on my stock wheels with spacers on my JK for several thousand miles including many Moab trips often airing down to 12psi for trails. Never had any issues. Now I run 315's on my stock wheels on my JL.......*knocks on wood* haven't ever had an issue.
