    grave digger wheels and tires.

    I picked up some gave digger tires for my son on the forum here and one of the tires is backwards tread so I want to swap it for him. I'm gonna get another set of two tires so I have the right tread and my question is do they just come off the rim or are they glued? And if glued, what's easiest way to get tire off the rim?

    The baking method has the best reviews... other than the stink.
    Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.

    Is that the only way? Wife ain't letting Me bake them. I thought you could boil them or something?

    It doesn't smell that bad if you bake them. Open a window and turn a fan on. Your basically just warming up the glue so it's easy to separate the tire from the wheel. It's the most reliable way in my opinion.


    Run it till you break it.

    Grilling a rc Tire Seems Logical!
