I want to get a new set of wheels for my Nitro Rustler. How to get wheels out of tires without having to buy new ones?

sorry cannot resist you would need either one cracking magician or a seriously clued up chemist who specialises in plastics

or a tub of acetone

^^^ They answered it for you, but not a tub a good 1/4 inch layer on the bottom, soak for 2 hours, turn over soak for 2 hours, and pull them apart.

Go to ANY paint store and get the acetone. All so get a new, empty paint can with lid to work with. Put in about two inchs of stuff, let soak two hours each side, and they peel away easy. The only thing is the foams will be shot, but I found it's the easyest way to do it.

Default Boil them

Boil them in a big pot on the stove they will come off the rims. Acetone can eat the rims and cause them to crack.
