The best locktite you can get is the 407, this is special made for gluing rubber on plastic great stuff luckely i work in the automotive industrie and can pick it off the shelf.
Try it and you will never look back.

Do other brands of CA available at retail stores such as:
Loctite
Gorilla Glue
Krazy Glue
Any others that have worked well

Please share your experience gluing tires with them and how it compares?
Ive tried aka, losi thin and med, Proline. they all work fine. I dont like proline just cause it doenst come with a tube lol. aka last longer imo

this is all i do. whats ama ? did you mean aka? if so i dont think thats a good idea. there is still a bunch of mold release on the tires. Take a white paper towel and clean the tires youll be amazed how much crap comes off

Loctite Gel, or Loctite Pro from Home Depot. All I use. Even Proline Premounts start to come apart, as soon as it hit it with loctite superglue, doesnt move ever again.

I have some feeling that Losi, AKA and Gorrila is the same stuff. Used Gorrila in a pinch, works good. The Racers Edge works good, little to thin honestly.

Losi/Aka/Gorrila. Curious about the loctite

Another happy AKA user here. Its the best I've used.

Losi blue is good to, but not as good as the AKA.
