Pull them out and peel the tires off.
Open all the windows and clear out the smell.
Get correct tires/rims and start over

(cheaper option)
Or... try them out and see if they work for you. Who knows
Ive done this successully; I put the tires in aluminum foil so they wouldnt burn , and threw them into the toaster oven @ 400 for ten mins.

the foil also helps with the smell; keep the aluminum foil wrap on and take the tires outside/to the garage to unwrap them. the glue yellows with the heat, you can use a qtip soaked in acetone to clean up any excess glue after it cools/dries

The b5m ce is awesome! Raced mine for the first time tonight only the second time ever driving it and first time racing a buggy and took 2nd in the b main. The car felt great I used the setup sheet that came with it. I even took 1st in sct b main with my pro2 which was a big deal for me. I have never one a b main, hopefully I can make an a main next week.

Looks like the CE upgrade kit will cost $90 mapp price.

Sounds like the B5mCE kit for $340 plus amain/tower coupon was a really good deal.

It says only available through their site. My guess is that AE is unloading more spare parts before an update to the platform.

Reminds me of that T-shirt you see in Vegas convenience shops:
