Narrowing Tyres: What kind of glue?


New member
Hello freaks, sorry for the dumb question but I'm going to narrow tyres for the first time. What kind of glue do you guys use to put the parts together again? The stuff used for bike tyre repair? Is there a link to a How-to anyone did? Thanks for your help.

Regards Jens


What the hell was that?!
I use Bob Smith Industries IC-2000 tire glue. Best part is that it's black. Something that's worked well for me is to use Lexan scissors to cut the tire.

Narrowed these Dirt Grabbers and they are holding up just fine.

Thank you, it's available in Germany, too. Best thing seems to be that it stays flexible and has a black color. I think I'll give it a try. Thank you for your help! Regards Jens
