AKA premonts are ok but if you like to mount your own AKA glue is the best.

Wahahaha !!!, pardon all the laughters cos I've been in that position too & can understand your hair-pulling frustration We've tried any brand of glue you can name, OK-Bond, Zap-it, Much More, blah, blah.... & would only swear by 'Loctite 406', the CA(superglue) specially made for hard-to-glue plastic & rubber.

Remembered years ago, the first pre-mounted tires was proudly presented by Medial-pro...... but then quickly despised due to them coming loose easily. Then we have Pro-line following suit & with same problem as well, other than with the addition of their molded insert disintegrating inside. OMG, how we hobbyist lazy to glue tires were pulling ourself bald back then.
