Default Tire Glueing Question ????????????????

I was thinking about using marine sealant 5200. i use this stuff on my boat all the time.
The reason i am think of it is because it is very strong and it flexes a bit, compared to CA glue when it dries.

I believe CA glue forms a chemical bond between the 2 rubbers, so its not about a simple adhesive, they are actually melted together.

Sealant is different than glue.

Sealant seals 2 surfaces together.
Glue bonds the surfaces together and in the case of CA the plastic becomes soft and can bond into the rubber.
