If they were glued properly, you don't. Doesn't Speedmind sell some good inexpensive rims?

Back in the day we used to boil them for a bit. It makes the CA brittle and it just falls off.....however, I don't know if it would work anymore since the new tires are so soft and I am not sure if they absorb the CA or worst, grab an old tire and rim.....then try might still work.

I wouldn't use acetone though....stuff is brutal on some plastics and can soften the rim.

Boil it. Acetone should work, but the inserts will be shot.
