The laquer thinner dip method works well. Hopefully you have a tire horn. I used to always mount my own years ago. I probably wouldn't use the 10 year old glue. The best stuff for gluing tires is PL wallboard adhesive. Go to your hardware store and buy a quart of it.

Unfortunately nowadays it isn't easy to get foam doughnuts. Mounting them yourself is much cheaper and gets you superior quality if you do a good job.

Remember to rough up the surface of the rim with dremel.

I use Loctite contact cement and it has been working pretty well. I coat the tire and wheel, dip my tire and horn (in my case a airplane propeller cone) in lacquer thinner and slide the tire on. Let it set up over night and go to truing the next day.
