Default Torn Trepador sidewall.....can it be fixed?

So I was ungluing my Deadbolt wheels and tires.........all was going well until the last tire. I pulled the backside half way loose and the sidewall tore on both sides. Is there anyway to fix this? I'm so pissed right now. They WERE going on my Yeti.

Some thin Losi CA and use just enough to coat one side of each tear and let the two sides join close back up. Should hold fine.

That takes me back to the tire shredding days with the Berg and Panthers. Two rips per course (5 mins) was my average. Gluing rips constantly. 6 or 8 rips per tire. Glue held up better than Panther rubber did. I think Losi had the better stuff if it's not all the same as what can be found at the local hobby shops. Then there's IC-2000. Rubberized. Black.

Thanks for all the info. I got my tire glue out and stuck it back together. Mounted them all up too can't wait to get it out now and see how it holds up.
