Retrue After Nail Varnish?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Having a go at putting nail varnish on the front tyres 'cause I read it's the thing to do.

 

I trued the tyres and they came up good. I painted the varnish on while the tyres were slowly rotating. They are a tiny bit bumpy now. Should I give them a light retrue or am I being pedantic?

 

Thanks.

Andrew

I use supa-glue but do re-true once I've applied a couple of coats.

 

cheers

Thanks for the replies. I'll give them a light true again.

 

I've already coated em in nail varnish so I'll stick with that this time round and try superglue in future.

 

Thanks!

When you use superglue put a couple of drops on the tyre and use your finger to spread it while slowly rotating the tyre. Saves you from having to true them up again.

 

Don't rotate too slowly, it's embarrassing explaining to the wife why you have a toy wheel stuck to your finger.

 

Cheers

May the downforce be with you.
