Default Best tire glue

What do you think the best tire glue is for 1/8 buggy?

I've seen recommendations of Loctite 406.

Zap-a-gap by Pacer works great. Medium CA but flows between rim and tire like thin.

You mean your tires are coming loose after running them even when you've sanded the rim and tire when gluing it?

Step 1. Spray motor spray or brake parts cleaner on rag, clean wheel and tire. Step 2. Spray simple green on wheel and tire clean off w/ warm water. Step 3. use Fusion glue

I never sand wheel or tire, never lost a tire. I think too many guys buy tires at the track and try glueing them that day w/out cleaning and expect them to hold.

knock on wood but I have never cleaned my tires with anything or sanded them...just mount them up spread the bead lay some glue in them. grab electrical tape and go around the tire to hold them into place nice and tight grab baby wipes and wipe the excess glue. never had one issue with tires and they look like the day I mounted them when they are out of tread.

I think my problem might be that im not cleaning the mold release stuff off them too well..

Will see for my next set I've bought some tyres brand new off a user on this forum and they have this glue (black tyres on black wheels) which you can see is like a black glue as it is the same colour as black pen when you draw on something. Its like one of the loctite glues or something, but I cant even budge the tyre when im trying my hardest.

The Team Losi medium glue works great and has a long track record of success holding tires to rims.

two words... Q-bond... well maybe one word, but be carefull its not cheap and sets real fast, i use it on my MT pirate tyres, and i give the modded G0-tech 21 turbo motor a real hard time with a 12 tooth clutch-bell, still balloon's the tyres, but to this day i havent seen the tyre come off the rim yet, and this after converting the MT to just a RWD what can i say?.. didnt want to spend 150 bucks on replacing the part, when i can steer it better on the rear wheels

I have had the best luck with the thin version of BSI glue.
Check out their site it has some helpfull info.
http://www.bsiadhesives.com/index.html

One other thing CA glue use moisture to cure they preffer 40 to 60 percent humidity at room temp. I have found that cleaning the tire and wheel with motor spray removes the moisture and hurts curing. If you let them set overnight they will reabsorb the moisture and glue better (also give the foams time to breath and reshape), I use my breath to help re-hydrate the tire if I am in a hurry.
