I wouldnt buy 1:1 truck tires if they didnt have the white letters on the sidewall

Never thought about the Magic Eraser but its brilliant. I gotta get one. Props to whoever thought that up.

I just stick them in a pot of boiling water, no smell nothing and they just peel right off - not money for acetone, and my wife complains if I put them in the oven......... but she dont say nothing if i boil them

Boiling does work excellent. The tires peeled right off after 15 minutes. However they turned my wheels yellow Magic eraser don't take that off.

Sounds like the dye in the foam got into the water and dyed your wheels..now your wheels and foams both dyed..time for some fastlane wheel wraps

Yup, they make those, but they are more like stickers..Here's another option..Go to Walmart and get a box of RIT-DYE comes in various colors, used for dying clothes..Put the dye in just enough water to cover all 4 of your rims (after water Boils)........leave rims in boiling colored water for about 10-20 minutes depending on how dark a color you want..Take em out and run under cold water immediately...you have 4 brand new looking colored rims..Orange is my favorite Rit color
