Sorry for the error, I have been using the Gorilla super glue not Gorilla glue and like Steve have not had the problem with other tires.

I am not using the 2 half style slicks, they just don't look right even cleaned up. The Polar Lights slicks have a back side insert that is side wall only.

 

I am seeing the split from the rim straight out to the tread area.

 

I was just taking one of them apart to check where the adhesive points were and it was where it started, has to be adhesive related. I also found that the rim was a tight fit in the tire which is probably contributing to the problem.

 

I'm tempted to try micro crystal clear or check out a vinyl adhesive, also using an exato blade to give just a little more clearance ( hopefully a slip in fit.

They still carry the Comp. Resin line or you can order direct from Comp.

I agree with Mike, I have  used TS13 over decals with no problem. Just go easy on the first couple of coats.
