If it works for you to lock down the tire then done deal. But both primary ingredients are known to be unfriendly to natural rubber so keep an eye out for that type of damage. The tire glued to the rim because the WD40 dissolved some of the rubber I'd guess. Pretty much like my PVC water sprinkler system.
That is exactly how it works. Absolutely the best stuff ever to install Mtb/BMX handlebar Grips. Might also work well for Installing Intercooler couplers. One dose is not enough to damage the rubber that much. Pretty much only conditions the surface. Itís slippery while itís wet making install easy but dries quickly within a couple minutes leaving a super high friction coefficient between the conditioned rubber surface and smooth metal or paint, also acts as a moister barrier.

As a kid I used it to hold grips on BMX bikes that we used for the purpose of repeatedly Jumping off a ramp set up off the end of boat docks into a lake. Grips stayed put where even Gorilla Glue failed miserably at the task.
