Use a mallet and strike the rim. They'll come out enough to use something else to grab them.

[))] [ ] = PVC pipe

You are supposed to take PVC off. Usually at the point when it's quite worn out. Then you replace the PVC/ABS.

If you use them to the point where they are very very thin you can just rip them off by hand. For the abs that is. The pvc may be a different story i suppose.

I would put it on (not in) a vice so that only the pvc/abs is on the edge and then gently hammer the rim down (out). The saw idea sounds good too. or drill a hole in the middle and use a needle nose pliers to rip them off.
