All these techniques and noone has mentioned the best glue secret.

I use, and I have to emphasized how unknown this is. LOCTITE Glue. It has less drying agent that any tire glue in the market. Although not merchandise for tire jobs this glue will NEVER come off. I have tried several brands and they all at one point or another come un-glued in some areas. The LOCTITE bonds MUCH better. It dries at a slower rate but once dry it leaves very little cristalization residue and lasts longer than any other brand. And it costs less too.

I laugh at racers re-glueing tires at the track with LOSI, AKA and other brands. If you don't believe me, try it once. You will be thankful to take my advise. Happy Glueing.

caribbeanpirate u should try putting some cream on those tires:d

We are working on a "technique" video for the quickest and easiest way to mount and glue tires by hand. Buggy and Truggy.

AKA's of course.


All of the rituals to glue tires are good if your tires are not fresh. Meaning that the rubber has sat for a while and lost that pure black luster. If they "sulfer up" and start to turn brown you can use motor spray/ nitro cleaner. If they have turned grey its advisable to not even bother.

Otherwise, open packages, punch holes, mount and glue.

The alternative is to send them to us and we can do them for you.

I use JB weld.

Ok not really. My steps go like this:

1. Open tire and rim packages.
2. Open glue and carefully snip the end off to get the flow going.
3. Put the tires and foams on the rim.
4. Pull back the seam and began to apply a bead of glue.
5. Get lots of glue on me and the side of the tire.
6. Finish the bead and realize my finger is already bonded to the tire.
7. Try to pry the tire off my finger.
8. Grow frustrated with the stuckness of my fingers and the tire.
9. Curse under my breath.
10. Log on to RCTech and hit up the Speed Shop thread.
11. Tell the Speed Shop I'm sending my tires to them to mount.

Works for me!
