Contact cement works good.

You put glue inside the donut and on the rim, let them dry. Then get paint thiner and put it on a can big enough for the wheel. Let it soak for a few minutes, and then just slide the rim inside the donut.

........I contacted Lee Muse at Winners Circle www.gasrccar.com
and he said he could get me 1/8 donuts from BSR. 1-866-648-7672 Lee said it might take a while to get them in..........NO ONE mounts their own tires anymore unless you have a car with irreplaceable rims like my RC250.............Matt

Exclamation tire glue

any rubber contact cement will do . the best way to do this is clean both contact surface with turpentine and let dry (rims and tire ) coat both the tire and rim with contact cement and let dry for about 5 to 7 minutes ,in a container with fresh turpentine dip both the rims and tires and soak for about 1 minutes enough to soak the cement ,force the tire onto the rim ,you will have about 5 minutes to get this done if not re-dunk the rim and tire once the tire is on the rim make any adjustment to the tire so it sits on the rims straight and even then let sit for 12 to 15 hours and let the cement cure . then your ready to true the tire for your set-up specs. have fun and burn nitro.
