O.K. man this is what you do....

1. Set oven to 425

2. Wait until it reaches temp then "TURN THE OVEN OFFFF" yes!

3. Put your wheels in for 25 min. (check in if you want during)

4. After 25 min. pull them out to cool off.

5. When they're cooled use your thumbs to crack the old glue beads and your done.

6. Safe for tires, foams, and wheels to all be re-used....

I have a big lathe at home and i cut most of the rubber off the wheels 1st then lathe off the rest of the rubber and glue and it also roughs up the plastic bead just enough so when i reuse the wheels the glue sticks better.

I can do up 60 wheels an hour.

i didn't have ANY problems with my losi red compound step pin tires. keep in mind that I raised the wheels/tires above the acetone so they weren't actually touching the liquid. the only issue i ran into was glue residue after taking them out of the can. It wasn't that bad so i just mounted them again as i was replacing foams, not tires or wheels.

if you're saving the tires, let them soak in the fumes once to get the tires off the rim, then fumigate them again and be ready to wipe off the glue residue when you take them out of the container so the old glue doesn't dry and crust up like mine did :P

For all of you using the acetone method I have some good news about the AKA tires and foams. I did not have 3-4 days to let the fumes do the work so I took a risk and submerged a full set of SS Gridirons.

I took an old kitty litter plastic container and a gallon of acetone and submerged the wheels for 12 hours. I took them out and the tires and foams came right off the wheel with just a small amount of glue left on the wheels and tires. I stuck the wheels and tires back in for just a minute and cleaned the rest of the glue off. The wheels were perfect as I knew they would be. I let the tires and foams dry for a few minutes and the foams were like new. Needless to say I glued a new set of tires with the same foams and wheels I had just acetoned and they glued up and felt just like they were all new again.

I would not suggest trying this with any other foam but if you want to experiment and let us know that would be awesome.

Tyres can be removed within 3-5 mins by using a heat gun,just warm them up and start breaking the bead.I use gloves as it will burn you.
It will not damage anything unless you hold the heat on it for too long.

You should do one side at a time and depending on glue strength it should only take 3-5 mins per wheel.

The other method is dunking them into almost boiling water.Take them out and try removing the tyres,if it won’t come off put them back into the water.

Ive tried every method and Acetone is By far the best way....baking is imo one of the most annoying ways and never gets all the glue off the rim or tire...it just breaks the bond between the 2.

When you use the acetone method, you put the acetone into a can then suspend the tires above it and let the fumes work. Do you put a lid back on the paint can while letting the fumes work or do you leave the lid off ?

yes and yes. i only used maybe an inch to an inch and a half in a 5" diameter paint can, then made a ghetto tire stand from a clothes hanger to hold them up. Seal that sucker up and put it far away from ANY heat or flame.

I just throw my truggy tires in a pot of boiling water. With in a hour i can peel them right off.

I do it cause I love the hobby and new tires, wheels and foam every week cost alot. So this is the best method I have tried...

I use an Older style MT Rim to prop the tire up and do the inside first then peel the foam out then worry about the face edge.

I had the same problem but with a spripped wheel hex. The tires were 1 run old. so i just took fishing line and sent it threw the wheel and tied it to the handle of the bucket on each side, so it was suspended above the acetone. Put the lid on tight and forgot about it for 48+ hours and they pealed right off. the tires or the foams showed no dammage or warpadge and worked like new.

best method out there.
