Default TYRE CHANGE

Hello all,
I've bought some second/hand wheels with tyres, I want to spray the wheels so I want to remove the tyres, is there any particular way this should be done ?
e.g. do you cut the tyres off, bearing in mind I want to re-use them, & must they be glued back on, also should tyres be 'airtight' when squeezed ?
Any info greatly appreciated.

For best result, and easiest way, is to bake them in an oven. Watch this video and it shouldn't be too hard.
Mechanical removal is not recommended, nor is boiling.

The oven method works everytime for me.
250 for 15 mins. If that doesnt do it I increase the temp by 20 degrees and do it again, repeat until theyre all done.
Do NOT attempt to pull the tires loose until everything cools, hot wheels are soft and deform if you try to remove the tires while theyre still hot.

the wheels in a steel pot with water, boil them until they come unglued, it takes about 10 to 20 minutes

It stinks. Either way bake or boil, youve gotta ventilate the house.
In my experience, not every glue will let go at boiling temps. Hence why I now bake all my tires.

I use a turkey fryer and do it outside. Just fill the pot with water instead of oil. Fire up the burner and boil those tires. I realize not everyone has one of these. Itís better than putting them in my oven and stinking the house up.
