I tried cooking after 1h in Boiling water i get 1 tire off.
Next try was aceton no luck even after 1h bathing.
After getting a heat gun next try ... and finally after 20 min all 4 tires now off the rims. Heureka
Best method but don't forget to wear gloves .....

Yeah, geography is something I routinely check against in this forum, which is why it's good to complete that part of your profile. Me, I can't remember the last time I saw a rock. Dirt, I got. Creeks, bogs, swamps, I got.

Good question. I recently mounted up some RC4WD TSL Boggers X3 compound, not vented. The 4.7in height allows me to clamber over the billions of sticks covering the forest floor, the tread pattern is great for dirt, and on airtight beadlocks the foams don't get gorged with swamp water. My general area btw...think Algonquin Park--damp ground, soft dirt, mossy rocks, creeks everywhere.

ps: The Canyon Trails performed fine, but are too big and fat looking. Plus, the stock rims are vented, which is okay, I guess, if everyone were living in the desert.

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 boiled. Started trying at 25 minutes but the longer all four stayed in the soup the easier it was, so I'd say 45 minutes makes sense. Wasn't sure whether to let them cool down or attack them hot, squishy and deadly. Went for hot. Wore safety glasses. Put on leather gloves but switched to rubber when I developed a nice moist blister hole in my left thumb. Tires came out okay. Foams, as I suspected, had long gone Romero.

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.

Boiling worked for me, but I will not use that method again. Yech.

Thanks! My problem is I'm not turned on by the fancy schmancy Method style rims everyone else digs. I like old school steelies that secure with five or six screws instead of a gazillion. I've got some from HR on order, as per advice from this forum.

ps: It was NateDog in that actual thread, turns out.

No guff. As mentioned in another thread, the Rc4wd rims wouldn't fit my Rc4wd tires! When I told the boys at SSD, they laughed.

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!
