    Tires coming unglued?

    I just took my ERBE out today for the first time in a couple of months. I was pushing it pretty hard on blacktop to make sure my repairs where holding up. One of the tires started ballooning pretty bad and wobbling like crazy. It looks like the glue has come off the bonding a bit (tires/wheels were glued in August of 2014). It is possible to re-glue them as they are, or should I boil/bake the tires off and re-glue all together?

    You may want to clean the unglued area with acetone to remove old dried glue, then rinse the area thoroughly with water. Clean bond sites are strong bond sites.

    Its really just a different blend of super glue ( cyanoacrylate) there are many different blends some are good for plastics. I think one has rubber mixed in with it. The ca i have used and like is zap. But honestly i have this loc tite super glue i bought from lowes it is the "professional" label and has a thin neck good for tires and never dries out . this stuff has got to be the best ive tried both ca/super glue. I glue my tires and rarely have to check them again awesome super glue

    I think it happened because I was pushing hard on blacktop. I use Dirtbonz tires on Desperados and have beaten them pretty bad
