yeah stick the wheel and tyre in a pot of boiling water for about ten mins then take it out and let cool and it should peel off the rim with a little prise with your fingers, if that fails preheat your oven to its highest setting turn it off and put your rim in the oven, take out about 40 mins later and just watch the tyre should just fall off the rim with a little push from the sides.

remember think safety first when hadling hot products always wear heat resistant gloves; ie. oven mitts

the tires will be toast no matter what you do, its kind of a last ditch effort to save wheels, not tires

FWIW, I tried the boil method with my stock ntc3 wheels, they cant handle the 220 degrees, and made some new fun shapes. As for putting them in an oven that is HOW, I dont think they would last more than a minute or two before becomming useless unless they are nylon. For MT tires I use the oven method at 275ish and it works well for me.

what are you on about you will use the oven ethod for MT tyres but not touring car size[&:][&:][&:] they are made of the same stuff so why would they be any different if you are only wanting to keep the wheel get a very sharp blade and cut the tyre of this would be my way if i wanted to save the rim

thanks guys, no they are not foams, i am refering to the foams inside the tire, the tire is a slick, do you think it will change the performance if there is a slight hole in the middle of the tire, its not that big, just looks ugly.
