Default Need help with TIRE removal

I have some 1/8 buggy tires that I want to remove, I want to try and save the tires and possibly the foams. I bought these and the rims or not correct for my buggy and they are in poor condition but the tires are new Badlands. Any help would be great.

boil them or bake them. either way i wouldnt reuse the foams. if you boil them just boil water put the tire in the water for a good 10 min and take the tire out and let cool it should peel right off.

if you bake them bake at 375 for 10-15 take them out after it should peel off

if they dont put in longer

Get an empty paint can, put a brick or 2 and about an inch of acetone in the bottom. Set the tires on top of the brick. Be sure the can seals tight or the acetone will evaporate. You can put as many tires in as you want, they don't need to be touching the acetone at all, the fumes break down the CA glue and the tires peel right off the rim. The foams *might* still be useful after this but I've never had good foams come out of tires that I was pulling off rims. Overnight usually does the trick.
