I done heat gun for Axial rtr rims and boiling water for canyon trails. Both worked.., neither was very fun.
They are a large tire but sure do work!!

Not sure if itís worth the effort.., in Canada most tire prices are ridiculous. If I were in the states., Iíd buy scale licenced tires.

All the best

I had great success baking them off...

1. Pre-heat the oven to 200C

2. Wrap each wheel in TWO layers of aluminium foil (keeps the smell to a minimum)

3. Bake for 5 minutes

4. Turn the oven off and leave them in for 30 minutes.

They peeled right off - no fuss. Use a towel though, the moisture in the foams will still be hot. And take them outside before unwrapping them - it stinks.

I also chucked a crust of bread in the oven afterwards to ďsoak upĒ the stink *BONUS POINTS*

Bake them off or use the desk lamp trick. Boiling sucks and doesn't work for me.

I did mine a year ago with a heat gun. Ruined two wheels (remember shrinky dinís?) and the glue pulled two beads right off the tire. I really like the canyons but wonít be trying that again.

Awe some of my favorite looking wheels and super durable, but I've got several sets of the same in 6-lug.

Agreed on most of the uber fancy wheels and VP used to make them narrower than everyone which is not good, some of their newer wheels are proper width, but always check the specs.

Hot Racing and RC4WD stamped steel are my go to beadlocks!

Finally was able to get the Canyon tires off the stock Defender rims.

Any advise on how to get the remaining glue residue off the tires? Looks like where I tried to wick acetone along the bead, there's some tough remaining residue there.

Real bugger getting these off.

>Heated in food dehydrator at 160F for 90 minutes - Nope
>>Wick acetone alone the rim with an old eye dropper. Multiple application over two days. Not budging
>>>Boiled in water for 20-30 minutes. Maybe loosened up 1 1/2 - 2 of the eight beads.
>>>>Heat gun. This finally worked but it took time and persistence.
