Sonny, PL400 construction adhesive comes in a caulking tube and will glue 2X4 walls to concrete. It's amazing stuff. I don't know if it would fit the bill for you or not. I've used a prybar, sledgehammer, and all my strength to move walls that were glued down in the wrong spot. I honestly thought the concrete would break before the thing came loose. You could try it on one lug and see how it goes. Ace is the place to get it.

Hey Sonny

Use Contact Cement. Used for gluing laminates to counter tops in cabnet building. You can get it at any lumber supply or hardware store.

Make sure the surfaces are clean. Follow the directions on the can.

I have used this on many rubber covered steel wheels and have had great success. Easy to apply and no mess. Drying time is important.

Jim

RTV Silicon also works great for gluing metal to rubber. Use the clear sealer/ adhesive type in caulking tubes applied to clean dry surfaces allowing 24 hours for it to set.

Jim:

I agree that contact cement will do the job. As you say, anyone using this for the first time should be sure to read the instructions because allowing both surfaces to dry before laying them together is counter-intuitive.

Also, you only get one chance when laying the parts together. That stuff REALLY STICKS! If you get something mis-aligned, you might have to start all over and could ruin the parts getting them to separate.

Take care - Elden

Eldon,

To release the adhesive, you can use a HOT AIR GUN. As on the wheel and rubber, get a corner lifted and direct the hot air between the wheel and the rubber. Keep tension on the rubber and it will peel back as the cement releases.

Been There, Done That.

That's a nice fact to know! Saves a lot of cussin'.

Take care - Elden
