Default Premounts -vs- Glue yourself to them

Just wondering since I really hate to glue tires...is there a company that makes a solid tire that is premounted? Or am I stuck with superglued fingers....heck maybe Im missing something or what, cause I always seem to get glued to the rims or sidewalls LOL

Anyways the tire itself isnt the issue, just like to spend more time running and tunning than getting unstuck....I know there is a jig out there that helps with this and maybe I should invest the cash into one...hehehe

The reason I dont care about the tires is that Im not sure what will work for the two places Im racing at...one is a already clay/dirt mix and the other is a horse barn that is 110x210 with loose dirt/sand...its heated and usuable for the winter time (hopefully) I have access to this and wish to pack the dirt down as we have done for paintball in the past.....its humid in the winter but there is two huge overhead doors that can be cracked to allow fresh cool air to come in.....plus this place also has a 15 deck overlooking half the area.
(sorry to side track there)

DS
Thanks in advance

I used the following video to guide me through tire glueing and aside from a couple touch ups here and there my tires are sticking well and my fingers are glue-free.

Use electric tape to keep the sidewalls pressed against the rim... peel the tire back with your finger... dump some glue and then let it roll down counter clockwise. Keep pulling back the sidewall as the glue rolls along the rim. ***Some people just clean their sidewalls, however I have been using fine grit sandpaper and I have seen that the sidewalls are "sticking" better to the rim. You just have to try out things on your own and see what works for you!

You have to ask yourself this:
Who do you trust more, a sweatshop in China gluing your tires, or yourself?

That is very true, the pro-line pre-mounted tires are glued very well. However the only downside is that many people like to run their own foams/cut their own foams. Once again its how finicky you want to be about your gear...

I tried some grp jollies last weekend and they are the best premounts I have seen, worth a shot.

WOW, I cant believe no one mentioned these (or maybe I missed it)


PANTHER TIRE BANDS!!!! I used to hate gluing tires, and I made a hell of a mess every time.

I got the tire bands and they work like a dream, I actually just finished gluing a set of prolines and they came out almost perfect.

I actually kinda look forward to gluing tires now that I figured it out
