Default gluing wheels and tires?

i just bought 4 new wheels and tires for my hyper 7 buggy.. however, the wheels and tires aren't pre mounted and i'll have to mount them.. the tires come with the foam, so all i had to buy was the tire glue, right?

everything should be here in a day or two, and i'm not exactly sure if there is a 'technique' to gluing tires onto wheels.. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! thanks

take off the wheels and do one side at a tim because if you put them verticle the glue will go on the tires and excelerate wear.

Try this, regluing tires is a huge hassle, but not as bad as having one come off during a race.

Best to get it right the first time.
