Default Tire glue

ZAP works well so does any super glue from your local $1 store. Just use some 400grit sandpaper and scuff the bead on the rim and clean both the rim and tire with acetone or other cleaner that wont leave a film when dry anywhere where glue is to be placed. I have not had any tires come off since doing it this way. Also use tire bands, rubber bands or eletrical tape to hold the tire to the rim with pressure while drying and run a bead of glue arround edge to help seal it from dirt and rolling over.

The Losi glue is good, if you're lucky to not get bad bottles which happens with it. I have not used PL glue, now I use Loctite from Home Depot (in same bottle as PL and TL glue). I think the loctite works as good or better, haven't had any bad loctite glue yet, and it's cheaper. Lostite = $6 where TL is $8 and PL is $9 a bottle.

Good info! Most all the glues work well if you use the above method. I like Losi due to the applicator tube also. Once I started using the above mthod i have yet to have a tire come loose off of the rim. Now I just have to figure out how to keep from popping the foams inside the tire. I've had three split and seperate and all you can do by that point is trash them.

Loctite for sure ---- and I get the type with the little brush in the bottle, that way it allows you to use just how much you want and put it were you want. Clean application, no spills, no drips, no errors, no muss, no fuss.

What is the dry time like on loctite?

My biggest troubles come from the glue setting too quickly. Using CA, the bond is good, however it likes to grab a part of the tire before I get it just where I want it. Normally I put the tire on, use electrical tape to apply some pressure, then simply peel up the bead a bit and put glue in it. However, sometimes the bead doesn't want to seat well instantly, and if it doesn't I find it is stuck where it lays. It would be nice if there was a glue that you could apply liberally, get the tire seated well, then just let it dry for 8-10 hours.
The other problem I have with CA is it tends to dry and leave a white residue on the wheels. Not a problem except I like to use black rims Does loctite fix any of these issues?

If you take some acetone, and wipe them down afterwards, it'll usually remove any of the white residue.

I also use Zap glue but the green lable one. Strong and inexpensive. I have yet to have a set of tires come off of the wheels. But I do prep them before gluing. I scuff the wheel and tire bead with 150 grit sandpaper then I clean the rim and tire with denatured alcohol or nitro cleaner. then glue them up.

I used to use proline but got a few bad bottles. Now I am using Jet medium. It comes in a 2oz bottle that cost $9.

Lately I have been using GRP tires and with absolutly zero prep they are staying together just fine. I think that with Proline tires I would atleast have to wipe of the mold release.
