X2 for the Panther Bands....i find the tape method and the 500 small elastic bands is a waste of time.

practice does help, but its not that bad, make sure your using a good glue with a wick in the end of it, also make sure your in the right state of mind and relaxed( not as soon as you get home from work ), ive glued countless sets of tires and wheels and they come out pretty good, nice and true and straight not that i havent f@#% up a few sets
1) scuff up bead on rim and bead of tire (dremel works perfect)
2)wash, wash, wash, i clean my rims with hot soapy water and the tire beads with rubbing alcohol and an old whit t-shirt
3) also check the tire beads to see if there is any flashing that should be trimmed off and be sure to put the holes in your tires before mounting
4) mout the tires and secure them with heavy rubber bands, its easiest if you do 4 tires at a time but only one side of each tire at a time
5)pull the beads back just far enough to get the wick in there, no too much glue itll squeeze out if you do, also it helps if you can stand the tire up and let the glue run down the bead, do this in 8 differrent spots, let them sit 15 min and try pulling the tire away from the rim and keep touching up the spots that do
6)finally once the tire is fully glued i run a bead around the outside to seal things up, stand the tire on end and place a few drops on the bead and let it flow around the rim, you will have to keep adding glue and spinning the tire
hope this helps, it is a lot of work but the results pay off

1 thing i dont do anymore is a Final Thin bead around the whole tire...i found the glue to always let go and require constant retouching.

Everyones got theyre way.... I used to do like in the video, but sometimes they would come undone.

I always dremel only the tire, I wipe both the tire and wheel with Acetone. Not sure why but when I quit using alcohol I had way better results.

I'll put holes in the wheels or tires, depending on if teyre for indoor our outdoor. I'll get them mounted up, straight and make sure the beads fit nice. Then I'll run a bead of medium CA all the way around the bead, then put the panther band on and let it dry.

Since I've been doing it this way, theyre perfectly round, no wobble and never come unglued.

Acetone I think is way better than alcohol for some reason.

So Tony you just glue around the bead and that is it. You dont put any between the bead and rim?

I really like the OFNA tire glue machine. Just did 16 tires yesterday. Fast, easy, no mess, perfect.

That OFNA tire gluer is a joke and a waste of money. It misses it's beads. Just practice gluing tires. You have the steps right.

dude aka truggy tires have to be the easiest tires out there to glue..
Your process sounds correct, except using the alcohol to clean.. so what is the prob exactly? tires come unglued? What glue are you using? What rims are you using?
