Tell us the step you take to glue the tires??

I had the same feeling about gluing tires but I have glue so many of them that I am pretty good at it. What I am trying to say practice practice and more practice..

well i start by taking the tires and rims and make sure they r clean. rub them with alchol. then i take a rubberband and wrap it around the tire. i pull back the bead and put a drop of glue. i close the bead so the glue runs in one direction. then let them sit til the glue dries with the rubberband on.

I gave up on glueing tires. i just buy premounts
Rims are beaten up anyway when tires wear out

if none of the tips and guides work for you do the same

glueing tires takes some skill to get it perfect......if you dont feel comfortable...offer some $$ to a local racer and see if he will do it for you....i do it for multiple of my buddy's who could care less to screw up a 100$ set of tires.

You know you have to rough up the inside rim of the tire and the rim of the wheel for the glue to hold better..

Instead of tire bands, just use electrical tape. A loop and a half of pulling the tape tight is all you need.
