Those are pretty poor rims, dont forget, you get what you pay for. :)
If its only happening in the rear, take off the 1.5 degree carriers and replace with the 0 degree carriers. This will take the extra loads off the rims. Failing that, get better rims! lol

two of them broke with the 0 degree rear and one with the 1.5

Did you try boiling them in SALT water (ie Brine)? You can always get a stanley knife and do it...but mind you dont gash the tires.

my LHS said to soak rims in standard petrol for a while, and the tyres will come off easily..
i would have thort petrol would weaken or melt the plastic, but obviously not

yea dont get sorex rims either that same thing happens.
dont use nail polish to remove the tires, i tried that and it ended up melting the rims, the best ways is to use boiling water and some good patience and elbow grease.
