    So yeah... I found out my RiD figures like Ultramagnus has badly split tires. Not just small splits or tears. These are right through the tire making it basically not a full circle anymore. :( 

    So I was wondering if just gluing it together would be ok. However I know that glue often melts rubber... so would this just be damaging it further? Is there a solution to fixing these? I don't expect them to be perfect but as long as I can get them to stay together and "on" the rims then it would be ok.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Same here. I just glued them back together. Works well.

    But were they completely split down the seam line?

    Did the glue end up melting them? They didn't unglue from the force because it was on the seam line?
