Hey James,

Yea you can. If you want one let me know.

They just push the tyre back and make it easier to glue....and no more stupid SUPER glue on your fingers lol.

Cheers, Davo.

After going through a few hundred sets of tires, it will take less than a few minutes to glue/reglue a complete set of 4 tires. That's why almost all the Pros are not using this type of device. If you are new to glue and tires, you will need extra help.

thanks Ricky

so i take it that the tyre gluers take more time to glue tyres then doing it with your hands.

but in staying that which one gives the best result? hand or tyre gluer? can those tyre glues give a good even glued finished? i cant even do a good job using my hands im very new to rubbers, well to gluing them actually

dude get the $10 hobbytech gluer, i got one, they work great. just remember less (glue) is more (better) cz it spreads quite a bit. all u need is like 4 glue points of 1 drop around the tire. once it is glued check that it is all stuck. just remember to make the hole in the glue tip small, or better yet use the bostic glue bottle with the button on the side of the bottle these are great cuz you can tip it upside down without it all flowing out.
