    Look at neoprene glue.
    I found it to be similar to contact adhesive, but sticks better to rubber.

    Re: Guys, PLEASE!!! ALWAYS 4x4 on gravel

    The 'ridge' is not left there by the grader.

    It is there due to the loose material being displaced (moved outward) from the road prism by the vehicles using the road.
