can someone give me the steps so that i wont have my tire getting unglued..

btw are these two systems available in europe? or can they get shipped in to europe?

help will be appreciated.

Thanks!!
1. clean wheel bead and tire bead with motor spray on a rag
1.5 (not really necessary IMO) lightly scuff both beads with sand paper and re-clean surface.
2. mount tire on wheel
3. peel back small section of tire and apply glue (don't over do it)
4. slowly roll tire bead back making sure there is full glue coverage (a tiny amount should squeeze out the end)
5. repeat all the way around
6. compress bead with elastics
7. Ideally let tire sit overnight for CA to achieve a good full bond

- Do not use CA accelerators as they make the bond brittle.

This device really does help out on the time and quality. Especially when doing several sets at one time.

1.75 - I like to put a hole on opposite ends of each tire (approx 2mm) before I put the inner and tire on. 2 holes per tire!

People still glue tires? jk I wipe the tire and wheel with windex and thats it.... havent had a tire come off for years (knocking on wood) no dremel, no sandpaper, just use fresh glue. I prefer medium proline
