Proline (I tried 2-3 bottles) was actually one of the worst for me.
i agree with you on the proline stuff

Ive been a losi standard fan when i gotta glue tires, but since going to aka, they are balanced, a hole in the TIRE, i dont see a need to mount tires but if i do i will be trying some AKA tire glue, but i dont see how it can be any better then the losi stuff since i dont have tires come unglued anyway.

^ Yeah I didn't think it would be a big deal between the Losi and AKA glues; but the AKA is just a little better

Right now I think the AKA stuff is pretty hard to beat,

With that being said, I have used quite a few other brands as well. Losi (thin and med), Pro-Line, Trinity (when they made some), Mercury, And a few others that I can't think of.

Most have worked pretty good when the wheels and tires were properly prepped for gluing. Some to me were better than others but, most got the job done for "one" run tires. When you try to get the last bit of life out of a set of tires, that is asking alot out of a glue bead.

Also keep that glue in the fridge and you should be alot happier with the glue the next time you use it. If in doubt, chuck it. Bad glue doesn't work very well, unless you like to repair the tire beads.

Well, then don't change

But if you do decide to give it a try; the AKA bonds nicer

Gonna have to go with Pete on this one and say FUSION GLUE!!!

The only thing with gluing tires is to make sure that the tires and wheels are clean and well prepped and you will be golden!!!

For those using the aka or losi glue, is it still possible to use acetone to remove the tires from the rims or are they done for once the tires are put on ? I don't race, I run a monster truck.
