Default Best way to remove tires from rim

Hey guys please help. I bought a new set of tires and for once glued them perfectly. Bad news is the pin striped the wheel. I don't want to throw them away it's a new set of Gladiators. What's the best way to get them off the rim?


Thanks

Preheat oven to 400degrees, turn off oven let wheels sit in oven for 10 minutes or so. they should peel right off.

Place them in boiling water for about 5 minutes. This will loosen the glue, you can wait till they cool before you pull them apart.

put the in the oven, but it wuld be best if you had a toaster over that was on the crappy side that way you could take it OUTSIDE.

When you bake them, you might have to replace the foams, on a few I have done I had to anyway.

If you boil them you will need to replace the foams. Oven baking seems to be gentler to them.

Aceatone is the way to go if you are not going to use the foams any longer. Fill a tub with aceatone place tires in fully covered and let sit over night with lid on the tub. When done the tires will fall off the wheels and there will be no left over glue what so ever on the wheels. I did the oven thing for a long time and although it works the aceatone works much better.

Note: do not do this with the pink tapper pins though. For some reason they do not like it and will shrink and get hard.

When done just pure the left over acatone back into the jug and reuse.

Yes. Just cut the tire off if you don't need it any more. Take foam out, them boil, or bake wheels.

i think that the best way is to save the tyre cos you might have other uses for it (cut them into bands to create thick bands to hold your tyres in place while gluing) but i cant think of what else to save the foam for... which is cheaper to replace? foam or tyres? not a difficult toss up...
