Do I really have to us CA glue.....

to hold the tires on the rims, what if I actually want to use the rims again?

I'm thinking Ados F2 might work, does anybody use anything besides super glue variants to hold their tires on?

You have to use super glue to hold the tires on. and after you wear the tires out and the rims are still in good shape you can soke them in asatone for a couple hours. the asatone will break the glue down and it won't harm the rims.

Oh Acetone = paint thinner? If so I would have thought it would eat plastic rims go figure lol.

Thanks dude.

the rims are not made to last longer than a set of tires. Every time I used a set of rims for more than one set, they came apart before the second set was finished. I don't think it's worth the money to do thatm rims are cheap enough and I hate to have a set of tires ruined because one of the rims is dead.

So feasible but not worth the effort and could in fact be counter productive economy wise?

It works fine on off-road tires, but I don't think I would try it for on-road ones. If you don't want to glue the tires, pick up a set of Take-off's (their pre-mounted).

Acetone=nail polish remover.
You can use laquer thinner too.
I tried to reuse rims and it dosen't work. The rims are already beaten to hell and look terrible. Took a pretty long time to get the foam off too.

don't forget to spray the rim and tire off with motor spray to remove the mold release before gluing. this makes to glue stick better. less blow outs.

Wheels from some manufacturers can be reused. I've had good luck with Schumacher, Proline and some Kyosho wheels. Kawada and Team Orion wheels that I've tried have been broken almost before I finished gluing them (I've been told that Team Orions newest wheels are made by Proline, but I don't use Team Orion wheels anymore).

I found the rims to be more prone to cracking when using the Acetone method to remove the tires.
I prefer boiling the rims in water to get the tires of.
It takes about 30-60 minutes for all the CA to let go of the rim (with a litle help).

The rims will be a little softer from the boiling but at least they don't crack as easy...
