Arrow Gluing Tires

i have glued up about four full sets of tires in these recent weeks. all of which developed a white chalky substance along the glue seam that seems to have eaten into the glue i spots. i prepped both tire and wheel with acetone letting it dry before gluing. is acetone too aggressive a cleaner to use on the rubber? i know it eats superglue, but is this what is causing this unsightly mess. though my tires appear to be holding, it's embarrassing to be running accidental white walls. what's the answer for the next time. alcohol? or is it just a reaction with the rubber. cyberbond and jet were the brands used on take off tires. any help would be appreciated as i am completely frustrated with the appearance of these.

For one, its a chemical reaction between the fumes of the ca and the rubber. Mine have done it but I remove it with water and a rag when the tires are dry. It'll usually disappear after a few runs anyway so no worry. Me too, I like my stuff looking nice so I know how you feel. On the other hand, if you race your car it's the performance that matters and not looks. If the sidewalls are holding your okay.

Does this white chalky substance cause you to traction roll?

Please submit a sample of this white chalky substance to H-Rob, originally dubbed "The Mystery Fluid Inspector" for further testing/analysis.

Thank you.

Two in two days for you guys. Chris and McSmooth seem to have started a trend among Cleveland racers.
