Depends how thick the glue is.
With thin glue you can do a whole set in 10 minuets.

I find that by the time i've gone thru and glue 1 side of a set its time to turn over and glue the other side. Once you've done all of the second side, go back and check that the first side has glued properly.

That's the way I do mine and haven't had a problem yet.

5 or so minuets more.
I usually let them sit longer than necessary so they dont stick to my desk.

Touch it with your finger. If your finger sticks then it needs to sit longer. If your finger doesnt stick then it's good.

It'll be stuck in 2 minuets but not ready for the power of a nitro motor.
It'll take a little more time for the glue to reach full strength.

If you think they're not ready give them a tug if they dont instick they should be good to go.

Thumbs up

I use the Losi med glue - I do all 4 tires on one side - let sit about 10 minutes once the last is done - the start over on the second side - let sit about 15 minutes and they are ready to be bolted on -

Now I do prep the wheel and tire bead by cleaning with alcohol before doing the gluing to remove any contaminates -
