      My very last thing I do on a new slick install is I use a white “Welders paint pen” to put a make on each slick. That way I know if they spun some and gave me a vibration. 8E4797F0-368D-4DAA-9F80-4DB546C531AC.jpeg

        When you need warranty, they want pictures.

            I remove wheels, throw on golf cart, drop off at Mickey support trailer, pick up when done
            Great info John…. although I preferred lemon fresh Joy

            I’ve been running tubes since the W8 deal came about

            Nice trick!!!!
            I knew about the dawn dish soap but i run tubes(3860 pound car, i need all the side wall i can get).
            Never thought you could run that much power on any slick with out screws or a bead lock.

            Wish you would have made this post 2 year a go when i installed my last pair of slicks.

            AGREE!!! THIS SHOULD BE A STICKY...........
            Just saying..............

                On coating the inside of tires, i just use straight dawn soap, no water. Plenty of it. Wipe excess soap off, done. I still use screws, since i have a 11.17 SLA and lots of torque. But i like the glue idea, i would think as long as the tires don t slip, should be as good as beadlocks. Tall sidewalls may not like the glue though, like a 33x15.

                  When I ran Automated Drywall Finishing tools( Ames, boxes, Bazooka, roller, glazer, ect) a lifetime ago, we added Dawn to the Mud. Slicked it out a Lil, and made it dry faster

                    I was told years ago to use Palmolive. I've always used it, but I just put 2 new slicks on and didn't have enough Palmolive for both tires, so I used Dawn on the other one. We'll see if there's a difference!

                    Any parts store should have them.
