Default damn tires...

how am i supposed to glue the tires to the rim, they dont want to stick for some reason?

at first i thought i was putting too much glue, so on the next one i put a small amount. still didnt work.

so i then buffed the rims to see if that helped, and it still didnt.

i waited about 10 mins for the one tire i put a lot of glue on to dry, it did, and still didnt stick.

the tires are brand new (ive glued used tires before with no problem)

and rims are used once, but clean and buffed a little bit (ive glued with used rims before with no problem).

so why all of a sudden i find it impossible to get these damn things to stick?!?!

Your glue might be bad.Also you need to take a cleaner to the rims if it has any type of oil on them it wont stick.

wow, i just tried again and it didnt work... the glue doesnt want to dry and im not putting very much at all.

its pro line glue, and like their foams, im expecting it to be garbage.

i buffed and cleaned thie 3rd rim real nice, cleaneg it with 99% pure alcohol after i buffed it, the glue stick nicely in about 1/8 of it but the rest didnt turn out very good at all..

everyday my car pisses me off more and more....

Try cleaning the tire, where it touches the rim.

the dremel is your friend.....

I sand both the tire and the rim....Mechanical and chemical bond.....Works well
..............

Also if your glue is more than 2 weeks old I would get rid of it and buy new!

im probably the only one to say this because ive gone through what you are going through i sanded the wheels the tires and cleaned everything with alcohol and it still didnt work i then looked at the glue for me i have never had luck with proline glue i have since switched to losi and i have never had a issue the glue would stick to me but it wouldnt stick the tires to the wheel. go buy some losi glue or some fusion glue and have yourself a go i bet they will stick 100% better

Default Dem Rims

Had this problim once. I used Acetone to clean the rims,then buffed the tires and rims plus fresh glue. you can soak them but will more than likely will kill the foams. The fresh glue is the most inportant part. Try to work fast and don't be to sloppy. You can trough 'em out of balance real easy. Then they'll shred to quick.

hope youre right.. my glue is a lot older than 2 weeks old, AND its proline junk. as of now, im going to stay far away from proline, thats ridiculous.

i buffed my brand new badland tire, and a also buffed my used proline white rim.

i then cleaned the brand new badland and cleaned the used rim with a rag (they were both already pretty clean)

i then took a q-tip and cleaned every square nm of the tires and rims "glue surface" with 99% iso alcohol.

i then set the rim up like how its supposed to be, and put a thin line around the whole rim of glue, then set the tire in, held it, and expected the glue to dry, leaving me with a perfectly glued tire

what i got was: either the glue didnt dry at all, nor was it sticking to my rim... it stuck good to the tire, but not so good the rim. i also ended up ripping my tire foam because the glue glued that to the tire, and losing my fingerprints for about 4 days now. just great.

why does my glue not work? its the bottom of the proline container, and its been sitting, in a cold garage, for about 2 months. it worked very good when it was on my fingers, but not to the rim.

ive used the glue before and it worked fine.

ive glue tires onto used rims before, they worked perfect.

why the hell am i having so much trouble this time?!?! its gotta be my glue or my rims.

i wonder why you guys cant get the pro-line to work? it works awesome for me, as good or better than the losi glue? in my dremel use the wire wheel preferrably, or a sanding drum if i cant find the wire wheel, lol! scuff the tire, scuff the wheel.. then clean both with acetone or denatured alcohol.. then settle the bead good on the rim..

the step i havent seen mentioned here is how the tire is banded while its being glued.. i use the panther tire bands and theyre the best ive used by far. stretch the band over the tire, almost (1 row out) to the edge of the tire, holding the bead tight against the rim. then i tilt it up towards me at a 45 degree angle and start from the 1 o clock position and make my way down a quarter of a way down at a time, rotating the tire so i can stay at 1 oclock... i use the pro-line THIN glue, a drop goes a LONG way, it only takes about 4-5 drops around the whole bead.. too much can be a problem...

if your getting glue on your foams from gluing the tire, your using too much glue... try securing that bead TIGHT TIGHT against the rim and glue it up again... even if you cant get those bands, use one of those rubber wrist bands you see everywhere nowadays or even some electrical tape, anything to hold that bead against the rim.

These tires are molded. So in order to remove them from the molds they spray them with a release agent (lube).
If you do not clean this off the tires before you glue, they simply won't stick.

I always clean the tire beads and wheels with rubbing alcohol before I even think about glueing.

Do this right and you will not have to worry about it.
