I soak mine in a tightly sealed container of acetone for 24 hours. Foams are shot afterwards but they come right off.

Boiling works okay too, just make sure and leave the lid on the pot as it raises the boiling point of the water. I think CA starts to break down around 140 degrees.

+2 for boiling.

I stunk up out house baking a set - didn't work that well either. Boiling is better than baking. Take your time, you can feel the CA kinda pop when its been boiled long enough, temp makes it brittle - def use some gloves, I've had best results getting tires off when wheels are still hot. The foams will get wet but once dried, are re-useable.
