Thumbs up Gluing foam tires the easy way...

Gluing foam tires the easy way...

The fastest way to gule foam tires on plastic or alloy rims:

First, install foam donuts on all of the rims.

Next, get a small bottle of thin CA glue with a plastic needle extension.

Gluing the back side of the tire first.
Pry back the foam with your finger and apply a drop of CA glue to the rim.
Keep doing it until you complete one side of the tire.

Go to the next tire doing one side at a time.

Glue the front sides and let sit for five minutes.

True them to desired size and race.
