Not being a car guy I would guess that you are gluing them to the rim.

I would use goop.

Avaliable at Canadian tire.

Thin CA will do the job nicely. Slightly pull the tire away from the rim and drop the CA into crack between rim and tire. Then release the tire, watch your eyes as a small drop of glue could be sqeezed out if you let the tire snap back into place. There is a CA from Zap specifically marketed for this purpose, apparantly regular CA can cloud the chrome on a chrome rim and the Tire Zap will not do this. I have used regular Thin Zap and just taken care to not get it onto the rim that is exposed. It should take no more than 6 or 8 drops around the rim. Think of the rim as a compass, put 2 drops at north, east, south and west. Make sure you do BOTH sides of the tire/rim. Do not use Zip Kicker and be sure the glue has set before you turn the rim over, if not the glue will run on the tire or the rim and look like crap. Ask me how I know this one...
