Default Other types of CA brands for gluing tires

I've had good luck with Proline and AKA glue.

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?

Nothing I have ever found at the Hardware store or HomeDepot ect
will flow like the thin weight tire CA. Racers Edge tire fusion is my
current favorite.

I use Loctite liquid (not gel) and have never had a problem.

I can't say I have that much experience but i have tried a few different ones I can't even remember the name on.
The last bottle I bought was ProLine thin CA and that is AWESOME.
Even the tip of the bottle is engineered to work the best it can.
I think I dropped 3 or 4 drops between the tire and rim and it evens out and covers the whole wheel all around... Just great and will never buy any cheap one again.

Gorilla Glue with the BLUE top is the BEST Glue you can get it takes a little longer to set up then the AKA are some of the glues like that but works just as good if not better i have never had a set of tires come unglued using the Blue Gorilla Glue.








You asked for it. Or maybe secretly wished for it. And now it's here. Introducing new Gorilla™ Super Glue, the first super glue that keeps holding strong, even when the bond takes a hit--we call it our Impact-Tough™ Formula. Just hold in place for 30-60 seconds while the formula sets, no clamping necessary. It's what makes Gorilla™ Super Glue, so, well, super

just make sure and clean the tire bead and rim mounting area with rubbing alchohol... and all those CA that is mentioned will work.. preparation is more key than the actual CA you use.. i personally luv the AKA

I tired that Gorrila blue cap crap once. Never again. Every tire came unglued instantly. It was fresh and stored cold like I always keep CA. Prepped the same way I always prep.

I'll stick with Locktite Pro. Never have an issue with it.

Man the most I do when I glue tires is wipe down the surfaces with electric motor spray and then glue. If the tires are AMA you don't even need to wipe them down, just glue them.
