cause its bad enough i have to buy another set of $25 tires to replace the messed up one......i really hate glueing tires.......
im with ya there, i hate glueing tires-and within a few days i should have 8 to do.
Put the tire in the bead, then pull it back out and place a small dab of glue on the tires lip. Put the tire back into the bead and massage it and allow the glue to move along the bead. Do this 8-10 times around the tire, using as little excess glue as possible.

how did you ruin a tire, gluing it on a wheel?
well i tried to glue the tire on one side,and it ended up gluing half off the bead..(meaning half of the lip of the tire was not all the way down on the rim.. and couldnt fix it to i took it off....and it tore up the lip of the tire...
is there a way to unglue tires? I want to unglue them tape the inside for ballooning and re glue them. sorry for the threadbust and the noob question.
put them in a pot of boiling water,,it will losen up the glue and rubber...Originally Posted by forced00si

to remove CA glue, buy Debonder from your local hobby shop. and presto, it debonds the CA glue..
Is taping the tires really worth it? The weight added to the wheels affects the truck twice as much, compared to just adding weight to the chassis, because the motor has to work harder to spin the wheels. I know that I would never consider taping the wheels, I have 20 mL of water in one of my wheels and it affects the performance quite a lot.

I do the boiling method. Works well. I have tires that have been on 3 different wheels.
As for gluing the tires, like Rocky said, put the tire in the bead, pull it back slightly and add glue. You don't need a ton of glue. For softer compound tires, I have found that putting them on the wheels a day or so before you glue them makes a big difference. It allows the tire to conform to the wheel.

and, for me, I use Shoe goo to mount all my tires, It works great, its removable, and is holding up to my VXL on 11.1 just fine... I suggest it for everyone,.....just make sure you let the shoe goo dry over night...
