DOES extended exposure to moisture break down the glue? Would whatever chemicals may be in the water on the road accelerate the deterioration?

Well, My Friend, no one has ever mistaken me for too few words.

But in reply to your question, I'd say it depends, especially on the quality of the gluing plus the glue. So, let the wheels dry normally in a relatively cool and quite dry place (not in the sun) and make sure the rubber is as usually dry as it usually is (since it does absorb moisture). Then have a very good look to see if the tires are still properly seated and round and if they are pulling off even a bit. If the glue appears solid, you're likely fine. Pump them up to normal pressures, spin them to be sure they float round (no hops), voila! Of course if you have the slightest doubt, pull them right off the rims and start over.

Sew-ups are an old time religion for which even this hardcore traditionalist no longer has the fervor ---but nothing has changed with aluminum rims since before Fausto.

No worries. The glue isn't water soluable. I'd be more worried about the tire slipping on the wet surface.
