Make sure that the rim is extremely clean of all oils and dirt. Then take a fine grain sandpaper and rough up the inside of the bead where you plan on applying the glue. Apply the glue; then set the tire. Make sure you let the glue set up for at least 30 minutes prior to any use of the tires.

What tires and wheels? Are they chrome plated? Did ya remember to scrape the chrome plating off the bead? Did ya wash everything?

Am I asking really annoying questions?????????

If all else fails, try a different CA.

You have to wipe all the Manufacturing oil off of the tire and wheels. I use DA.

Also which Zap are you using, I prefer the thick over the thin, it seems to hold much better. I have not had any problems with the thick.

Check the air pressure. About 35lbs should get it
