One use I have found though is to re-adher the basetape back to the casing after a repair - doesn't seem to work on all tires (I guess dependin on what is originally used on the tire casing) but for those that it does adher to, it is tenacious!
I haven't had much trouble getting tires off, but perhaps I use it a bit more sparingly than others might. I've had success gluing tires even when I only put a single coat on the rim (and none on the base tape).
In search of what to search for.
