        Lets just say stay away from the banks and you minimize your chances of a flat.I very rarely have run tubes(those things cost money)and I've had exactly 1 tire pop off the bead since 1996-yes I screwed up and clubbed a frozen bank.

          If you are running the Tercel then it seems to like about 18 - 19psi. That should be enough to keep the tires on. If you go lower then I would worry a bit more.

              I run 14psi in the rears because my car is so light, and have always run tubes. Are they really needed? I don't know, but I don't take the chance.

                I also run tubes and low tire pressures. It is not just the banks, sometimes the potholes in the track can do the job if you hit them the wrong way.

                    Tube them - cheap insurance to keep the rubber on the steel . . . .

                      +1 for that... If you blow out and mangle a tire, you'll be wishing you spent the extra $15 per tire to prevent that. If you were in street stud I wouldn't be so concerned as the pressures are higher and the contact with other cars is minimum.
