Default tires with glue? Should I dump it?

Hi. I accidentally put some CA glue on a tire. I put some debonder but it already had stuck nicely to the tire. Should I trash the tire? The glued tire surface is very glazy and slippery. Another thought is if I keep using the tire, would it eventually wear off? I appreciate experienced comments.

If you are going to race it, its trash.

It the spot is small it will do for some funride/practice.

It will be there until the rest of the tire is worn out probably.

You could cover it entirely with CA glue and when you have four tires you could use it for drifting.

short version: trash

It WILL wear off. Unless the area is so large that it creates major handling issues, just practice with it until it wears away. It'll be fine then.

Id be surprised if its there at all after 2 x 5 min runs, have done this multiple times unfortunately, and it always wears off.

Tarmac or carpet might play a difference.

I race carpet and I've had small amounts of excess CA (minor tire repairs) wear off the contact patch fairly quickly.. a couple/few runs.

if you are careful with a dremel and a sanding drum at low rpm you can get most of it off, then the rest should wear off when you run it. (if you run a 4wd car put it up front).

You can easily sand it off by hand, or just wear it off.

tire truer is the best way. Just take a thin slice, it will come off and leave a nice truer tire.

Acetone (or nail polish remover with acetone) will remove CA glue without harming the rubber.
