For what its worth, If you do want to use a debonder to remove tires and or excess glue, Super Solvent from Golden West (I think I got it from Tower) is the best debonder I have ever used. I had brand new tires and a foam blew out. With Super Solvent the glue goes stringy like cheese on a good pizza and it rubs off of the rim and tire to leave both surfaces clean. It took some elbow grease but I was amazed at how well and fast it worked after the disappointing results I had in the past. When you guys use the heat and/or acetone to remove tires is there a second step needed to get the old glue off of the tire or rim?

+1 if your trying to save the Rims, plus your left with a 100% Clean Surface Minus ALL glue.

Oven baking results in Glue bring left behind which Dries to a Crusty mess which is require to be cleaned up If your trying to re-use either part. Acetone while it may take a little longer, requires Zero effort on your Part. No Stinky Kitchen, and a Perfectly clean part to work with.

Also Aka and other similar foams CAN NOT be Baked, you will Cook the essential Oils right out of the foam and be left with a Hard Shrunken Foam that is Useless.

Did you soak the tires or Float them in the Acetone ? In the past ive boiled for Hours with Zero results.

Float the tires in the Acetone, Just 1" or so above it and let em sit for a week, They Will peel right off and you can remove the foam from the one Side. Then your Free to Soak away and save both tire and rim with a 100% clean surface to work with.

This is essentially the same as the oven method and will damage the foams (Pending brand)

Do not forget to wear gloves when griping the hot ruber

the best way by far is to soak the tires in acetone. Cut the tires off the rim without damaging the foam, then soak the rims with the bead of rubber in a bucket of acetone. You can't let them float they have to be under the level of acetone. Give it a day or two and the rubber slides right off with no residue leaving a nice clean rim.

Why would you say You Cant float them ? That's How i Dismount IF cutting the tire isn't an option and it works just Dandy. Ya it takes a little longer, But if your in Such a Rush you really should be just buying new to begin with.

Just did a set yesterday, and acetone is definitely the way to go! You ca either submerge the bead in acetone or put them in a sealed container and the fumes will do the work. Submerged it only takes about 5-6 hours and the rubber literally falls off the rim and cleans up completely. Set it, forget it, remove it, mount them up good as new!!
