Any fresh THIN super glue/CA. The glue doesn't matter so much as long as it's fairly fresh. I have no idea how people use the medium or thick stuff....

Prepping the tire and wheel is far more important...... get both really clean.

Two things that matter for gluing tires:

1) prepping the tire and wheel - scuff and then clean

2) application of glue - you need a solid bead of glue all the way around the tire. If there are any gaps in the contact area, then the tire will eventually work loose from the wheel. Best way I have found for a consistent bond is to do step 1 above, then mount tire and foam to wheel, getting the tire PERFECTLY mounted on the wheel. Now, peel up a small section of tire at a time, stick CA glue nozzle in there and apply a few drops. Re-seat the tire so that it's PERFECT, then quickly move to adjacent section of tire and repeat process until done. I move around the tire about 1/8th way each time. I use medium CA glue, which flows around the wheel.

It takes a few tries to get just the right amount of glue. You need enough to form a strong bead all the way around the tire. Too much glue will just make a mess. You need to start with the tire perfectly mounted and you need to re-seat it perfectly each time you lift to apply glue.

+1 for the Loctite 406, simply the best glue on the market, you have to be carefull with it though, as it bonds TO GOOD sometimes, if you reuse the rims simply soak them overnight in some acetone as it disolves the CA and is safe on the nylon wheels, trust me you wont be peeling the tyres off if you use the loctite glue, onky acetone will get them off.

i use a loctite super glue but is there something else that won't harden on contact with the rubber like the super glue does? sometimes the tire doesn't perfectly fit into desired space and the superglue hardens very fast. any suggestions on maybe a slower setting material. thanks in advance

Ive never used the loctite stuff but the fusion tire glue works really well. I love the way just a drop can do a large section of a tire and it drys so quickly I dont get glue on my hand as I work my way around. I'm curious about the loctite stuff but the fusion works so good I doubt I'll go out of my way to find it.

I also dremel the tire bead till its got no bad spots or extra rubber and use denatured alcohol to clean the wheel before glueing. The prep work is more important than the glue you use.

Gotta say, Pro-Line Glue has been nothing short of excellent for me. Used Losi and Loctite as well, both good glues. It's all in the application and prep.
