Although it may not help you today my shop is doing a "tire" prep and glue video.

Check out the Speed Shop thread, we offer services that do this for you.

We also have a "Free" tire mount special with a few spots left for customers...

By the time you get through that video we could have had a set of tires fully glued for you. (just waiting on the cure time now....)

Does anyone else think the pro-line video is a little off the mark. He only glues the tires in 4 spots around the rim and lets the capillary effect do the rest?? I like to make darn sure that my tires are glued all the way around, and I know if I only applied glue 4 times a side they wouldn't be no matter how much capillary action is taking place

If you use a high quality, super thin glue(like Ofna Fusion), it doesnt take very much glue or time. I only glue in 4-6 spots as well. I go through a minumum of 4 sets of tires a month and have never had a bead come loose.

I can add that if the tires are over glued it is a major pain in the arse to get them undone !!!!!

I hate glueing tires as well but I can;t afford to guy premounted all the time.

Thin CA is a watered down version of its true self.

It does not have the holding power of medium.
