Default Tire removal help??????

I have a tamiya m05 and have worn out a set of front tires and wish to remove them and save my special painted rims... What is best, boiling? Baking? C.A dissolver?
How have you guys removed tires before?

Just bake them, set the oven to 300 put them in and start to watch them after about 8 min. You will be able to pry the tires right off after 8-15 min.

I've boiled before and it worked great. I would be cautious of CA remover as it may hurt the rims. Anything with acetone can melt them.
