Pre heat you oven to 350 turn it off the place the tires on there for about 10 minits .


the tires should come right off.

If the rims are made of the same material as Losi's, you can soak them in acetone and the glue dissolves.

Boil them for 15 minutes, let cool, pull em off.

I'm noticing a recurring theme of heat

baking them or acetone, or both, I have had bad experiences with the boiling, makes the rubber to soft and tears easier. I have had to bake monster truck tires for up to about 25 minutes for complete removal. If you bake for 15, and then acetone for several days they will come out all clean and shiny, and you save the rims and the tires.

be careful with the acetone...if it gets dirty it will stain your rims...seen it when i was carpet racing...they kinda get to be almost a brown color...but the acetone works very well...

Leave them in for 24hrs, check them & if needed put them if for a little longer.
