I stripped out a truggy rim and baked the tire (Proline Bowtie) at 350 for about 20 minutes. I have Ofna molded foams and neither the tire nor the foam was affected. I placed it back on a new rim and I was good to go. I just used oven mits to check if it was ready or breaking loose from the rim. As for the stink it was minor.

Thanks guys, I think I will try some of these methods just for the heck of it. Little concerned about the final product being race quality, but if you don't try it you never know.

if your wheel has any scraping on the inside of it, dont waste time with trying to reuse it, that means its out of round and is actually making contact with arms and stuff

I have used the baking method before with success. I tryed to use a toaster oven one time and it killed the tire(I was only doing one) It actually caught on fire. I think it was because the toaster oven was very small and the tire was too close to the heating element. That was a lesson learned. But the normal full sized oven works well. You can smell the glue pretty good but it disipates as soon as you turn the oven off.

Yes I have reused both foam and rubber before. You just have to be careful to not rip the rubber or foam when taking them off. Sometimes they will be kinda tricky to get off without ripping them.

Baking works great is less messy and by far the fastest method. And some foams take it well. ACetone works great to but is a pain in the arse to deal with the stuff. It is dangerous. The tires will not melt. Just heat to 300 or soo and put em in for ten minutes. Put on some gloves and pull em out to test the bead. put it back in if it aint ready yet. When it is time they will just come right off.
