If you suspend the wheel above acetone in a closed container, the glue will soften enough to get the tire off, and you will be able to keep the wheel, tire and insert. Just periodically check them, say overnight.

Besercoe - interesting idea, I hadn't thought of that. I will give it a try.

Iso - boiling makes the CA stiffer so it will break off. I tried boiling and it worked, but it burned my fingers as I worked the tires off.

If you wanted to keep the tires, I would probably sacrifice the inserts since they are cheaper than the tires are. . .

Is there a difference if I run front foam tyres in the rear? are the rear foam tyres any different? also what will happen if I run higher shore in the rear? My back seems to wear faster than my front. I think front has minimal wear but the back wears about 1-2mm per outing (3 to 4 battery packs, 30 - 40 minutes of mod motor)

Did you adjust your ride hight (pre-load) in the rear so that it compensates for the taller foams? If not the rear of the car would have a higher center of gravity in the rear and more roll, that would make the tyres wear since more of the tyre is making contact with the ground.

If that didn't make sence....

There is a camber change when you adjust pre-load, so if the tyres are taller you'd need a pre-load adjustment to compensate and take your camber back to it's original setting.

This is just a guess, I don't have any experience with running higher shore foams in the rear....
