Questions?? What tire glue do you use?

I don't know how to make poles, so I will just ask. What tire glue do you use?
I have used medium CA. I was not extremely happy with the results so I got some of the IC-2000 black tire glue (CA epoxy mix I think). I tried to squirt some on my rims and it wouldn't even come out of the bottle. It was so thick, more like tar then like glue. I think it was just dried up. Does anyone have experience with it? I have heard it used to be good, but the 'new formula' is not working well. Thanks!

I just use regular Loctite brand cyanoacrylate glue from the hardware store.

Loctite CA works great. I am 99.9% positive that racers edge "Saxton's Choice" tire glue is Loctite CA with a different label on it. The bottle is identical and smells the exact same.

Losi or Dynamite's new Stiksion Premium CA Glue. I am really liking the New Dynamite glue the more I use it.

So are you telling me you go around sniffing these glues?

Losi tire glue is teh way to go. I really like the handy thin tubing it comes with that allows me to get the glue onto the rim rather than my fingers

Another Losi CA user - glue is great, but the applicator tube is the best! Hardly have to disturb tire bead and get a controlled amount of CA. Makes for even coverage that doesn't get glue everywhere.

I have not used the Losi glue, although I have used numerous other brands and I must say that Racer's Edge Fusion glue is the best I have used yet.
