Default Drift Wizards, come to me. lol tire question.

What is the magic trick to gluing a set of HPI 26mm drift tires?
These are some tight damn fitting wheels/tires.



I have the long flexible glue tips for my CA bottles but i don't see how those would stay in the groove long enough to get any real amount of CA in there.

Whats the secret?

Super glue works best when the amount of glue between the surfaces is one monolayer thick (one layer of molecules), so if you can get any glue in there at all it will stick well.

I did a PhD in surface physics.

No glue needed.

What tires are those in the video? They look like cut and tapered PVC pipe.

I'm no drifter by any means, just getting a set of drift tires for a project car I'm working on.
