Yeah brother I did, I think that maybe I had too much CA and it could've been that I was mounting the Pro-Line tires on DE wheels too. I think the bead on the wheels may have been to shallow.
I appreciate your concern and your post seabass, I got it worked out and I actually tried again on another mounting and that one went well so again thank you and hello!! Im new and I'm already ranting!! LOL how's that for a newbie huh?! lol!!
Cool,I'm glad to hear the second attempt went better...It does take a little getting used to and A worthwhile note...it is easy to apply too much glue.Welcome to the forum and thx for the feedback.

Great instructional post SB!

I just glued up a set of AKA Gridirons and it went smooth as silk. Thanks for taking the time to share your advice.

1) Acetone won't damage the tire or wheel?
2) How many holes, how big?

I failed at my first attempt. I used Panther supersoft tires and they fit really loose and when I put them on they got stuck in one section and I could not spin them. I think I might need more glue. I might have to stop by your house for a personal training session on tire installation! lol

I think the key is not to use to super fast setting c/a glue I use 15-20 second setup type. If you didnt glue them all the way up drop them in the acetone and start over or I can do one on thursday at delta

I got the right glue and now this way rocks! I'm not sure why they push fast setting glue for any tire mounting method?

This is a great idea and I use it on all my tires now and am getting better. My last set looks factory perfect. Thanks for a great method. I got all kinds of stares while doing it this way, but the results speak for themselves.

I kid you not, they were perfectly balanced. I glued the small side first, rotated the tie on the rim to even out the glue, the glue the other side as you show it being done, awesome method.

Also spins out dirt and lets the tires breath so they flex as designed.
