1) It's MOST IMPORTANT to use a High Quality CA Glue Made in the USA... I say this, cause glue that comes in from overseas has sat in a EXTREMELY HOT SEA Containers during shipping rendering the glue useless.( very important)

2) Tony N. is correct about NOT using Alcohol. (very bad) Alcohol, and motor-spray, causes the tire to leach oils from within the rubber. (not good for CA)
I use nothing, just a clean rag, and wipe clean.

3) (Most common mistake) When gluing most ppl try hard to get the glue deep in the bead. This is NOT necessary, and can get your tire glued to the rim were you don't want it, and or your fingers..lol I put the tires on the rims so they're in the bead perfect, then put on your mounting bands, then lightly pull back on the tire just enough to expose the outer side of the bead (so if you were to let go of the tire, the bead would pop right back into place with no fuss.) apply glue in that lil exposed area.. the glue works it's way deep in the bead..Trust Me!

All the cleaning, and sanding is good, and can help, but it's really time consuming, and not necessary if you use HIGH QUALITY MEDIUM CA MADE IN THE USA.. HOPE THIS HELPS GOOD LUCK!

When its time to put the CA in there I have the tire on the rim... but no bands.... Then I'll squirt some CA in between the rim and tire.... THEN put the band on last.

Wassup Joe.... You still got my number? My phone took a dumb this week... should have a freshy by sunday, give me a ring if you got a min.

dude if this has good results maybe ill try it, ill admit all the sanding and cleaning is a huge pain in the @$$, its just something that gets beaten into peoples heads after awhile and it makes sense to me to prep everything good, thanks fo the info on the alcohol, ive never had a problem with tire coming off or not being true but this sounds much faster
