I have never sanded wheels or tires either, but if you did sand them, you need to clean them thoroughly. I've been using denatured alcohol, but will use acetone also. You'll notice theat the tires give off a black residue. Once this is cleaned off, I just glue them. On my truggy tires, I've been wrapping electrical tape to hold the tire against the rim when I'm gluing them and I leave them like this overnight to dry. Buggy tires, I just use the Panther tire bands. If you like to leave a small bead of CA at the edge of the wheel, use zip kicker accelerator to make the CA bead bond instantly will its sitting in the ridge of the tire and rim.

dude, seriously go to a mitre 10, or whatever, and ask them for q-bond, you will get a tube of super glue and a tube of powder, if you mix the powder with the glue, you can hold up a concrete pillar with a 2inch pole(i know) if you just use the glue it will definately hold tyres together, but i think for what you want to use it for, it might set too fast, just thought i'd tell you about a wicked-strong fastener that might help you in the near future
happy racing fella's and GO THE MUGENS

I like losi glue the best. My bottle of fusion is going in the trash, maybe its a bad bottle but tires will not stick at all and i even cleaned the tires and rims.

I really like Fusion, but I hate the way it sets up in the bottle so quick after it's opened. I'm lucky to get more than a few sets of tires out of a bottle.

I used to really like Losi tire glue, but after seeing what's happened to the quality of Losi stuff across the board since christmas, I'm afraid of using it these days.

I'm about to try some Mercury M300M. They claim it will bond any combination of metal, plastic, and rubber so I'm going to give it a try. The plane guys swear by their foam safe and "RTF" compounds.

This is a good one. Many ways to get it done. I watched some Pro guys recently just use motor cleaner on the tire beads and then glue them up. I was told that way works, but I don't run one run tires so I don't think that may work for me. Whatever glue I have used I will keep it in the fridge and that seems to help for the most part. Most of the time that I have had an issue with tire glue it was because it was old. I usually use the Losi or Pro-Line glue which is what I can get a hold of the easiest locally.

I too never sand my rims or clean the tires with anything other than a wipe with the rag and Ive never had one come off. I guess ive just been lucky.

Maybe it was the awful luck we always had with medial pro premounts, but I've not bought a set of proline premounts yet. The medial pros had to have an extra bead of glue run around the tire/wheel seam or they would come off. I'm sure proline has solved that problem, but it's just too simple to glue a set up for me to want to take the chance. I just finished gluing up 3 new sets for my GT2 with the mercury M300M and it's different than what I'm used to because of the slow drying time. The extra time to get the joint just right after I had glue on it was real nice though. The joints came out real well so I guess I'll find out soon if mercury is worth using.
