I use a big pot that holds about 2 gallons of water, but I only fill it about 2 inches above a full set of tires. keep it at a rolling boil, put your trimed tires in for about 15-20 minutes. pull them out with tongs and peel away! I usually trim the tires to about 3/4 af an inch above the bead so I can get a good grip on the rubber. dont forget to remove the foams first if you want to reuse them. Cheapest and wasiest way I have found. I did 4 buggy seta and 3 truggy sets in one afternoon. beats paying $25 for a gallon of accitone. but that method works too!

turn oven on 350 degress for about 15-20 minutes, shut oven off and put tires in for about 15min, take out of oven and stick them in freezer for 10 minutes, then pop them right off

You make it sound like it costs 25.00 everytime you do a set. A gallon can be used over and over and over and over. You don't need an inch of tire to grab because they fall right out of the bead. I have done everyway mentioned and acetone is what I always use now. I use an old plastic cooler with and inch in the bottom. Cut all the rubber away but whats in the bead. Soak one side over night and they fall right out then do the other. Pour the acetone back in the can and use it again.

My wheels and tires are usually shot so I dont want to re-use them, but if I do I put them in a can with acetone on the bottom of the can only. ( about 2-3 inches) I suspend the wheels over the liquid with an old cooling head so that they do not touch the liquid and the fumes from the acetone will eat away the glue in about 24 hours, provided you seal it up air-tight. ( I use empty paint cans) you can find them at home depot for about $4 each. Each can will hold 2 tires and wheels.

Does any of these methods allow you to reuse the tire? Cutting the beads with a exacto to change foams is a PITA, If I could sit it and forget it that would be cool even if it took 24 hours or longer

heat gun mate. just heat all around the bead and peel off. i saw this on you tube and give it a shot. it works well. a lot faster then the oven method and you dont sink up the whole house.

Same thing I do. I use a 2.5 gallon paint bucket tho. I can fit 4 tires in a bucket easily. I have been in the same gallon of acetone for a year and a half now. I use wire to suspend the wheels above and seal it up. Forget it for for a day so and bam tires are off. Simple.

you've all got it wrong, you soak the tires in acetone, and while they are still in the acetone, you then microwave it.

Ok all jokes aside, please don't try that anyone, but if you do please set up a video camera first.

That's it! Has anyone tried fire! Lets burn the rubber off. Might warp/ burn the rim a little but it should work, right?

The best way....by far....is to remove said wheels with tires mounted from car/truck....toss with aplomb into nearest rubbish container.

Your time is evidently FAR less valuable than mine. Perhaps you kids will get there one day.

Okay, so it might not actually remove the tires, but it's pretty cool!!
