Question about Mounting tires on micro rs4 wheels

I just bought a HPI Micro Rs4 Rtr car and have a question about mounting the tire on the wheel...

I've applied the foam tape on the wheel and mounted the tire on the wheel. The manual says to apply CA glue between the wheel and tire...

Do I need to apply the glue between the tire and wheel? The tire feels secure on the wheel?

YES GLUE THE TIRE ON THE WHEEL. just because the tire feels secure dosent mean it is going to stay on. the centrifical force of the wheel spinnig will make the rubber tire stretch regardless of how tight you may think the tire is on the wheel
what the heck is r/c car??? ( said in your best redneck voice)

I never use glue on my tires. You don't need to use glue unless you want to.

Not sure if these things have wheel spin or you will do very sharp turns or donuts, but I would glue them. I did not on my Nitro RS4 and now my chrome rims are all messed up.
