Hi Guys,
The best stuff to use is Acetone (nail varnish remover). Let them soak for 12-24 hours.

I use super glue/CA debonder or release.
Let it stand for a day or so making sure that it doesn't dry out (where the glue join is) and the tyres can be gently removed from the rims.
I had to remove a FG monster tyre from a broken rim and it worked fine for that.

if u use the nail polish remover DONT USE STRAIGHT ACETONE like u buy from the paint store it will eat the rubber leaving the bead still on the rim also i have used a heat gun i have tried all the methods and they all work about the same

Or you could skip trying to remove the tires and install a set of these.

it worked on my nitro's tires, never tried it with the large scale wheels but surely it'll work.
