debonding tires
 
is there any good way to unglue tires, if so how?

Put the in the oven at 350* for 5 to 10 minuets and they fall off the rim.

get a empty coffee can with a lid on it. put some 1" wood block in a + on the bottom. fill it up with acetone under the wood. fits 2 buggy wheels, or one truggy wheel.

wait a few days, and presto! the glue melts and everything comes out ok. wheel, tire, foams. all still good if you need to reuse any of them.

the fumes do the work, not the liquid

Its the fumes that work..Huh? I`m going to have top try it that way


I use a 5 gallon bucket fill with 2 gallons of acetone.Submerge the tires in the fluid and place the lid on the bucket ..Wait 24 hrs and remove the wheels

I have a friend that has been reusing the same fluid for the last few months..Make sure you keep the lid on it so the stuff don`t evaporate

Foams wiull be garbage but the tire and rim will still be good...I use this method to reuse the rims or to remove good tires from craked or broken rims

+1, exactly what I do. Except mine are usually done in 5 hours.

yeah, if you want to save the foams its the only way to go. takes a couple days for the glue to melt, but it worth it if you just cracked a new set of rims or have long wear foams you dont want to waste

Acetone works great but beware of Losi Pink, Proline R3 and Panter Clay (likely J-Concepts Gold too), if you do the acetone trick on these rubber compounds the tires will shrink and harden like voodoo skulls. Have to employ the bake trick on these.

so will acetone ruin the foams or not?

I found that it does (YES)

ngl 07-01-2009 07:31 AM

thanks, i might try baking then

does it make the house stink though?

thanks for all the replys

Davidka 07-01-2009 07:32 AM

If you're using acetone, bet on the foams being destroyed. Sounds like if only the fumes come in contact with the outside of the tire then the foams can survive but usually acetone will eat foams.

if you submerge the tires in acetone it will destroy the foams.

if you do my method and keep the tires up out of the acetone, and allow the fumes to do the work, then you will be able to save the foams.

Yes you`ll be able to smell it in the house.....I cooked a frozen pizza three days later and it tasted like rubber,even after letting the oven dry out..I will never use the oven again

YUK!!!

dont submerge in acetone, its the fumes that do the work. so sit them up off a pool of acetone and cover. go drink some brews, go to bed, wake up, check them, go to work, come home, more brews, run a tank or batt, then b4 bed, check em and more than likely done. ready for refoam, tire change, or removal of a cracked rim

I just did some and I boiled them. Threw them in an old pan and boiled them for about 20 mins. 1 at a time. Tires came right off. You'll want to have some gloves on though. I used a couple OvGloves.
