Now, most of you guys are probably pretty spoiled with pre-glued tires already on the rims/wheels. But, for those of you that do buy donuts, what do you recommend for glue? I'll be using BSR (black) and RC4Less (orange) wheels.

Dap contact cement works great.

thats what we use to do. just do the rim and the tire and let them set until dry . dip them in some acetone just before you slide them on and they'll slid on real smooth.:thumbsup:
:thumbsup:

I used lacquer thinner but other than that pretty much the same. Be sure you rough up the rim with heavy grit sand paper before you put on the glue. I want to say I used 60 grit or something like that.

...I use to mount all of my own, and haven't used the DAP Cement, but the same basic process... (We used "Wetsuit" Cement , and it held GREAT)

I would suggest getting a KIMBROUGH Tire Horn, or cutting down a funnel to help slide the donut over the wheel.

Dip the Wheel , then the HORN , then the TIRE in the acetone/lacquer thinner

Slide together, and rotate the wheel 1/4 turn inside the tire to help make sure ALL the glue is activated.

(I usually let them set up overnight before truing or using...)
