Sorry man, I found this hilarious!

Are you saying you went on-line to find someone to glue your tires on for you?

Take them to your LHS. Im sure someone will glue them up for you.

No I think he is referring to actual tire gluers. They make them. Never used one but they make them.

Worth every penny. Those tires will be worn out in a few weekends. That tire gluer will be around for years. I never use pre mounts. Ive been using the tire gluer method for over 4 years

doing it by hand doesn't take long. For the price of the gluer I can purchase 2 sets and mount them myself.
