I soak them in a coffee can of acetone, over night. They peel right off the next morning. If the tires have regular foam in them, you can sqeeze it out, and let them dry then reuse them. the Proline foams fall apart, but the tires, and wheels are good to go!

Default risky

If you're just a basher that is the way to go, but acetone will damage some tire compounds.
