Was it actually drivable? Didnt the tires come with foams? There are a few ways to dismount them and install some foams but you probably should just go get new rims tires and FOAMS.

I'm guessing that the handling of your truck prompted this post. It's a simple thing, but most essential. all you have to do is use an ]x-acto knife on the inside glue bead. use your fingers to pull the tire away from the rim, and stick your x-acto knife in there and cut it off. jam a foam insert in and glue the outside bead back to the rim

Or you could boil the rims and tires and pull the tire off and start over. I don't know how well this works?

you can soak the tire and rim in asatone ( that is spelled Wrong)
An overnight soak and they will fall right off the rim.
