OK, you're right. Just seems like every big race I attend that the "local" tire of choice or trick never makes it to the A-main.

Ok, I did the oven method. First I tried it at 200. I let the tire heat up and then I would check it every 1-2 minutes. It was taking a long time and the tire bead was barely coming off of the wheel. I increased the temp to 320. This really made the CA turn to liquid and the tire bead began to come off with some light pulling. I was able to check it every 5-6 minutes which really heated up the CA. THe mistake I made was pulling a little bit too hard on the tire bead at the lower temp, causing a little tearing of thr bead but not too bad. If I would have done the 320 temp and did it every 5-6 minutes or so, I think it would have come off really easy. BTW, it hardly smelled at all. But anyway, I got the tire off of the wheel, reglued it (the right way) and it is fine. Thanks to EVERYONE for all of the replies and input.

Foot in mouth removal time for me.
I'm an acetone fan BUT,
found myself without rims on raceday.
I had a couple sets of worn outs so I did the oven thing and had my rims ready in less than 20 minutes.
Both methods work fine for me and not too smelly after the oven.

I tried the oven method. 300 for 15 min. and it didn't work. Trying the Acetone method now. I got some premounted tires in a deal that looked like a 5 yr old glued them.
