Check that the tire bead and the rim bead are compatible. If the tire is designed for a hook bead, it will not work well with a non-hook bead rim, like the ones on you 1986 Lotus.
They stretched after being mounted for a while, and now the tire isn't seating well on the rim, letting the tube slip under the bead and KABLAM!
