Slide it on. As long as the inner diameter of the pipe is within 1/2 mm of each other, you can "force" it on. The tightness is enough for the pipes to stay on.

When the pipes are gone (takes quite awhile), they become thin enough to slide off the rim and u can install new pipes onto the rims.

I recommend getting rims that are a little softer rather than those that are hard and brittle, this is coz I broke the hub area of a hard brittle rim before after just a light bump against the wall and the pipe being hard and all just makes the shock of the impact a little too much for the hub hex area. Besides, its easier to slide on a pipe if the rim crumples a little.
