    I'd like to but I have few .21s in reserve. I can't imagine when I'll need to buy a new engine

    I like to use a lot of glue to glue these tires but you can glue an inch and hold it for 15 to 20 seconds or if you have enough practice you can glue half the tire then rotate then glue the other half.
    You want to hold the lip of the tire away from the rim then fill the gap up with glue and continuing to hold it open then take both thumbs and work the glue around the rim. It takes practice so don't go nuts if you mess up...
