You do need to keep Jevelot Tire Life around to reattach the base tape edges. If you are using narrow, aero rims and live near hills, you DO need to use a glue that is not heat sensitive. Aero rims and mountains = melted regular glue and tires coming off rims at high speeds. Stevan Thomas Alameda, CA
