Two piece tire glue


Recommended Posts

I just checked some AMT 2-piece slicks with a sidewall insert, and it's as I remember...if the insert fits well in the tire, assuming you've removed the little piece of molding runner and any flash, you don't NEED any glue to hold it in...especially if you put the insert side towards the car where it isn't seen.

And if your wheels fit correctly, they will also hold the sidewall insert in if it's loose (which it rarely is) when you  glue the wheel parts together.

Right. And if you do need glue for some bizarre reason, superglue should work fine.
