I've recently switched to running 50,000 weight center diff fluid in my D8T. Also, all four tires have Gorilla tape on the inside. This has made a huge difference with ballooning for me.

Did you take the tires before gluing them?

A trick I used is to turn the tires inside out then put a strip of duck tape around the tire then return the tires to normal insert the foam and glue them
