There is a certain amount of prep work required before glueing
the rims and tires.
Scuff the mounting areas of the wheels and tires with 220 grit
sand paper as recommended.
Cleaning both tires and rims with a mild solvent is necessary.
Denatured alcohol is the best thing to use, but Isopropyl alcohol
can be used if you don't have denatured alcohol.
Use a cotton swab soaked in alcohol to scrub all oily releasing
agents from the parts. This will also remove any sanding residue
Let the parts air dry, the alcohol will evaporate quickly.
Start by putting on protective eye glasses. Mount the tire onto
the rim with the foam insert included. Be sure the tire is facing
the correct way. Roll back the tire bead, I set the entire bead
back into the rim while I quickly applied a bead of glue to the
rim. Carefully, but briefly, set the tire bead into the bead slot
on the rim. Be sure not to allow the tire to snap into place as
this may cause glue to splash out. Getting this stuff in your
eyes would be a nightmare.
If moving quickly isn't your thing, you can roll back small sections
of the tire revealing a small amount of the rim bead at a time.
Apply a drop of glue to the rim bead slot and ease the tire back
into place. Do this around the whole tire.
Make sure the tire is held in proper alignment while the glue
dries. Once the glue is dry, the tire will stay where it is. I
like to let the glue dry completely before doing anything else
to the tire.
Once the glue is dry, perform the same steps to the other side
of the tire, being careful not to get any glue on you.
After both sides are dry, roll the tire back from the rim with
your thumb, if there is a gap between the tire and rim, apply
a drop of glue. Do this all around both sides of the tire.
Allow all glue to dry. I like to put a small even bead of glue
neatly around the area where the tire and rim meet. I do this
as a precaution.
Warning! Cyanoacrylate not only bonds tires, it quickly bonds
skin and fumes from cyanoacrylate may cause health problems. Read
all warnings on the packaging before using.
