My tires are spinning on the wheels

I have just gotten a set of the MM Konig Villians and was at CMP this past weekend.The guy beside me in the garage had the same wheels on his AI Fox body and was telling me that he kept getting a bad vibration toward the end of a day and figured out that his tires were slipping on the wheels so I decided to mark mine. Sure enough the left rear was slipping under acceleration and moved about a foot in 40 min. The right rear moved about 6 inches and both fronts moved about 4 inches undere braking. WTF! Have any of you guys heard of this?

Yes.
Happens all the time.
It can be minimized by using as little lube as possible when mounting the tires on the wheels and/or cleaning off the lube after the tire is mounted but before seating the tires on the wheel bead.

Hot tire pickup and spinning on the wheel are the reasons many racers skip balancing their race wheels.
