Default Tire Gluing

Is it okay to take tires that are coming unglued off the rim then re glue them? Will everything still be good for use? And whats the best way to take glued tires off rims? I have some proline bow ties and crimefighter but the previous owner didnt do a good glue job. So i wanted to take them off and re glue them. Any help would be nice

350 degrees for about 10 mins. Let it cool then remove the tire. The foam might not be usable after that.

Why what would be wrong with the foam?
Are there any methods that will not destroy the foams?

Foams starts to break down into pieces as soon as you start using the tire on the track or get moisture from washing the tires.

Some people use acetone or boil it. I'd think that these will definately detroy the foams.

I do this to get old wheels off used tires so I discard tires and foams.

Yes, you'll start to smell the rubber. You'd not want to bake a cake until you air out you oven first. I use a small toaster oven for this and do it outside.

once the rubber gets CA glue on it new glue does not take as well. you could go through the trouble of boiling off the tires and starting over, but the high temps could affect the rubber adversely. and just seems like alot of work for little gain.

how bad is your situation anyway? what I would do is to clean out the unglued areas with a q-tip soaked in motor spray. and glue with a quality tire glue like AKA's using some strong rubberbands for clamping, and burn them up in practice. if you run at LH they won't last long enough to worry about coming apart for too long.

If you need any help I will be practicing at LH saturday. just look for the blue and orange kyosho, using lots of throttle.

I've boiled off a few sets of tires. Never really had any adverse effect, it was just very time consuming, and as the above poster said the tires never seem to bond the same once they've been glued the first time. with boiling though the foams seem unaffected.

for racing, cityblocks, either medium or hards. some guys are liking the proline calibers in xtr compound. for practice anything can work, I am not ashamed to say I have even used proline badlands.

I will be using expired cityblocks tomorrow, will try some proline knuckles just for kicks.
