bake them at 350 for about 10-15 minutes.
i've done this with several tires.
just put them on a pizza pan. bakes the tires right off.
you can reuse the rims again though, if any glue is left just peel it off or crack it off. loads faster than that acetone crap.

So we can just slip the tires and rims into the oven, with no need for any form of cover? Will the oven be safe for food after that? Will aluminum foil help?
I mean, if baking or heating those rubber results in "fumes".

The baking method works great the first time. But after your wife smells the results you will be banned from doing this again. Better to get some acetone and put it in a 1 to 2 gallon bucket with a lid. Throw the tires in there over night and they should peel right off in the morning. Tires and rims can be reused. If you are not re-using the tires then cut as much of the tire off the rim as you can and then throw them in the acetone.

Yep +1

Dont forget Acetone is HIGHLY flammable. Not all tires can be reused, like Pink Taper Pins. Soaking those in Acetone will ruin them. Acetone will evaporate also....

when ever i bake tires the left over glue on the rim just comes off by scraping the surface with an exacto. not much effort at all.

acetone, forget boiling and baking. with acetone at worst u'll lose the foam (many of us thats what we're replacing anyway)

take an old tupperware/rubbermaid bowl (u wont eat from anymore) and lid. pour in 1/2inch or so of acetone. find a prop to keep ur tires above the acetone, u DO NOT need to immerse the wheel and tire, the fumes are what eats the CA. seal it up, go have a beer, watch the game, give the wife some attention and go to bed (u choose the order lol) and by morning (if not brunch), ur tires will fall off the rim and if either the tire or wheel will be reused, they will be fine to do so.

EASY?

i have a gallon of acetone in a sealed 5 gallon bucket that stays next to my pit space and just cut the tire off of the rim and throw it in the bucket .
Whenever i remember i check the bucket and its like christmas everytime.
The rims have sat in the acetone for 2 weeks and were fine,come out with no signs of glue anywhere. I hav probably done over 50 sets this way and it works flawless

Pretty much what I do. You can get a big jug of acetone at Home Depot for cheap.

Again though, acetone is NOT good if you want to re-use Losi Pink compound tires. Acetone shrinks them up like crazy!

I have had losi pinks expand in the oven, like balloons, if left in too long or too much heat! maybe you could counteract that with the acetone. lol
I have also cut the inner side wall and refoamed and reglued with success.
