Do you HAVE to reglue every year?

Any known way to glue tires so that you don't have to reglue them at the start of the next season?

I use Mastik One and I have been lulled into false sense of security a few times now. Crashing out in my first races. I hate the work of regluing and the tires always seem still really good. I practice on them, train fast, etc. -- then do my first race which is MUCH faster and whammo roll a tire. I'm going to learn this year! Reglue!

...But I wonder if there's a tubie method which lasts longer. Like for 2 seasons, say.

I weigh 180 and like to run em soft -- the ol' 25psi game for cush and traction -- and offcamber tire roll-offs.
