I apply extra glue into the fine ridges where the rim and tire make contact. I used to play (yes, i didn't use the word 'race' because I was just bashing around) on-road and it helped to stiffen up the sidewall a little bit and the tires are harder to come off.

CA glue requires moisture in the air to help it dry. I see you live in canada its possible the air is dry and the glue will take alot longer to cure. Try letting it sit with the bead wraped to hold it tight overnight.

i think thats what kinda happened, i came back in the morning and the one tire that i really worked on was stuck nicely in some places, but not so much the others. i brought everything inside to see if temp had anything to do with it.

If you're trying to glue tires out in a garage that's freezing cold, then yes, you are going to have problems with the glue curing.

all the cleaning you did should have them stuck together forever... i think it's the glue that went bad... they may look fine and works well to stick your fingers together... but they don't fuse the plastics and rubber together like when they are new...

try loctite 406... they'll stick them together till the tires tear and shredd and will still not give way....

ca tends to get thicker when they are going bad... once that happens, it's time to throw them away.... so, bottom line is, buy the smallest amount that is available, unless you run a tire glueing business...

two words

mold release its used on the rubber tire so it frees itself from the mold after injection.


take electric motor spray douch the bead. and soak a rag with the spray and get to wiping.. sometimes it will take four maybe five times for the mold release to stop seeping out of the rubber.

after i figured this out ive never had a tire come off. also you should get yourself some good heavy duty rubber bands.. put them on after you glue the tires.

also the BEST tire glue ive bought so far. is the losi tire glue.. not because of hte glue but because of hte bottle.. the tip doesnt clog the top doesnt get stuck on it.. and theres a little tube that you insert into the tip to make gluing tires fool proof and you dont get your fingers full of glue.

here the method I use from Nitrohouse, I use out Ofna tire glue which is thin glue and bond quickly to the point that I don't use rubber bands, these vids are a great help. The pro-line glue is also good stuff I've seen many pro-drivers use it like Kortz,Jay Halsey,Degani right before a qual. or main and not have tire problems, it's all about preping the tire and wheel. I always use denatured alchohol to clean the release mold.

I was just about to post a link to that video, DJ!

You beat me to it.

It is a good video on the subject.

Prepping and gluing tires the right way is a somewhat time and labor intensive affair. Be patient with it.
