You can never get the rims in a good condition again if they are bent in any way
Best way is to buy new tires and wheels...

Default Bent rims

stoopidbstrd;

If the rims bent it's because they are Polystyrene and not Nylon. Had you put them in Acetone, there would have been a Gooey mess.

The oven works get for taking tires off. Just put it on 375 let it preheat then turn it off then put the tires in there till the glue cystalizes and take the tire off try not to bend the rim, they wll be hot and if you bend them they stay bent. OH and the oven smells like tires for a bit but goes away in a vented room.

Calvin Ng - id just run them, it should wear off after a couple of laps or at most a 5 minute run.

do you fill the pot of water up to the top or do you just have enough water so the wheels are in water?
