Default Automatic Tire Gluer?

I race 1/10 Electric Off-Road Stadium Trucks and the 2nd thing I hate most behind rebuilding shocks is gluing tires. I bought the RPM Tire Gluer but it turned out to be a waste of $10. I know someone makes an automatic Tire Gluer around $80 but before I go wasting $80 I was curious if it was any good? My fingers appreciate your help

Default Gluing tires

I feel the same way that you do about gluing tires. If you run Losi trucks the step pin rears and the directional fronts come pre glued. I have found most of the are quite true and then I use a prop balancer and (golf club head weight) tape to blalnce them. I am not sure if any other tires come pre glued, it is fortunate that is what works best at our track.

I use Losi Bi-Di's in front with Bomb One (Grey) inserts and Holeshots or Square Fuzzies with Bomb One (Grey) inserts in back. Unfortunately those don't come pre-glued.

The OFNA Tire Gluer says it is compatible with 1/10 Touring Car & 1/8 Buggy Tires but doesn't mention 1/10 Trucks or Buggies, does anyone know if this works with 1/10 Trucks or Buggies and if so how well it works?

I knew mine works well for 1/8 buggy. ......truck got wider tyre and smaller diameter so it might work but I don't think as well as for buggy .....lol
