    Must've been over tightened Ant? Only thing I can think, you can try removing the nuts and bolts, counter sink the beadlocks and using wood screws, like me :p

    I've used wood screws before because they pulled through, had mine that big that the screws stick out of the beadlock. This way it's not pulling through again, if it did your bead would just rip.
    New wheels/beads course screws tighten just a 1/4 once the screws bitten job done.

    Also use flat screws not countersinks, using countersunk in soft thin walled plastic will just rip it.

    Just use some washers and re use your nut and bolts
    The washers need to be bigger than the recess in the beadlock
    That way your not Wrekin a set of wheels
