    Help with remounting tires

    I shredded a couple tires and was trying to get what's left of the tires of the wheels. I have a new set of tires waiting to go on and was wondering what is the best way to remove what's left of the tires currently on the wheels without messing anything up. I tried to just rip them off but it seems pretty tough and it's still leaving where it was originally glued.
    Off to the hobby shop I go.

    preheat oven 350 *F put the wheels in the oven for 10 min with gloves, take them out pull the tire off the rim. If they don't want o come off put back in the oven go to the next rim.... beware of the stink.....
    Or
    Acatone soak the wheel then pull the tire off, but it might ruin the foams...
    Would you go flip my truck back over??

    You can also take a razor and cut some chunks out, then dremel the rim with a wire wheel to remove rubber/ca glue.

    The Dremel is like magic. lol - I get 1/8" aluminum sheets, draw my parts on them and cut them out with the dremel.

    If I really want to preserve rims and the tires are shot, I'll just cut the whole tire off the rim and dremel away left over tire. This way I don't need to cook the tire/rim combo to separate them. Most of the time I just throw it all out and start over. haha

    Depending on the rims, it's cheap enough, & it is just easier to buy a new set of rims & start fresh.
    Once you tape your tires they will last alot longer.

    I think from memory that the Response Pro are newer (and more expensive), taller and stickier than the response. I use pro response tyres for dirt and short grass speed bashing...if you use on the road they will last you a couple 6s runs.

    Post #120 and post #135...I have them mounted on Geode rims, they come with a 1/2" offset

    Yeah I saw they were more expensive. The response pro's are out of stock at where I buy my stuff from though.

    Before Dremeling, cut off as much of the tire as you can with an exacto knife/blade, like this guy:
