My 2cents.
Take Off tyre glue is hugely popular at National level here in the UK.

I just wanted to mention that if you or someone is new to gluing up tires, the Loctite Gel SuperGlue is great. You can actually put a thick bead around the rim and it will give you plenty of time to position tire properly before it sets up. Of course, if you need the tires in a pinch, this is not as desirable. You probably want to let it set up overnight.
Now that I am a little better at gluing, I prefer the thin glues for that very reason. It set's up almost instantly. I have had good luck with both the Proline and Losi glue. I liked the Proline bottle better. While the Losi glued the tires up nicely, I eventually had to toss out half the bottle because the cap became fused with the bottle.

Kyosho glue is the best that I have tried.

All I do is scuff up the rims where the tire will be glued w/ sand paper. Then I mount the tire & put rubber bands over the sides of the tire where they will be glued. Then I take a medium bottle of ca that you can pick up at just about any hobby shop. I then give it a little squeeze and run it around the side. If you get glue thats too thin the excess stuff will run all over the tire & make a mess.

I use thick Flash CA. I usually scuff up the bead of the rim and tire and clean both with denatured alchohol first. Never had a tire come off the rim when doing it that way.
