    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.

    Splitting Tires
    I have a problem with tires forming a split in the side wall. This is happening mainly with Polar Lights slicks which are a 2 part tire.
    I have been using just a couple dabs of Gorilla glue to bond the tires together and the same for wheel mounting.

    Is it the adhesive reacting over time? What are you guys usins as an adhesive fir tire and wheel mounting?

    Thanks

    Don

    Window Glass
    Wondering what you guys use for window glass ( mainly side windows ). I have tried Evergreen but it has a dull look to it when installed.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Trying to avoid going thru all my kits. Is there a 1/24th kit that has the Hurst "T" handle shifter?

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