Default Tyre Glueing

Hi,

Just wondering if once a tire starts peeling off the rim what is the best method of cleaning them and re-gluing them?

What about brakes parts cleaner on the bit of the tire exposed (dirty) and cleaning well and re-gluing?

best way would be to use some fine sand paper or dremel with wire wheel to clean the rim bead where you need to do the repairs. Then clean that spot on rim as well as the tire with either rubbing alcohol or thinners. then use a couple small drops of CA glue and place a rubber band around the wheels to apply pressure to the tire or just hold them tight.

Proline make a good glue you should be able to get from your LHS.

also here is a fitment guide which may help...

I use motor spray. Some real fine sand paper to scuff the area and a tooth brush with some motor spray to clean it, wipe with towel and glue. Scuffing it up is the most important thing to do. And be sure to put a rubber band around it to keep it tight to the rim or you will get a big gap that will just come unglued again.
