I am doing a Nascar theme in my son's room and would like to make a tire rimmed mirror. I have a real Nascar tire that I will be cutting the face out of for the frame. I purchased a plexiglass type of mirror material, that I will attach right to the tire in the tire lip (16" round exactly).

What type of adhesive would I use to adhere plastic to rubber?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Clear silicone is an excellent choice. You may also consider some of the Loctite bonding agents. They have an adhesive (anerobic) for just about any application imaginable.

By the way...aquariums are held together with clear silicone. Pretty strong stuff when you consider a gallon of water weighs 8.4 lb and even a small aquarium is 10-20 gallons. That's a lot of weight pressing against the glass sides.
