Default gluing tires

I just GLUED my first tire and I totally GOOFED!
There is LHS CA glue (not name brand R/C glue) all over the front of my brand new Venom tires. Is there ANY way I can save this one tire.

CAN ANYONE HELP ME?!

JayBee;

Get ahold of some Acetone or Finger Nail Polish Remover. Wet the corner of an old Rag and wipe away. You should be able to get most of it off this way.

Just be sure to keep away from Sparks or Flame and use only in a well ventilated area. (common sense safety precautions)

either way, it is pretty difficult since C/A glue hardens like a rock and becomes hard to get off. Needs patience
