any help will be appreciated.

Thank you.

Throw them in the oven for about 10-15 minutes at 325. Put some gloves on and peel the tires off the wheel.

The oven tric is the only thing that has worked for me.

Tried to boil some tires off some plastic wheels many years ago, resulted in badly warped wheels that was not useable afterwards.

I just did the oven trick on a set of Duratrax wheel and tire combos for my Bandit build, 10 - 15 minutes is perfect. I would be careful though since you have water in the tires already, wouldn't want you to get burned.

I tried removing glued tires on an Axial RTR once.
Acetone didn't do much.
I didn't want to the baking route and end up with an oven smelling like rubber.
Boiling worked, and the kitchen smelled like rubber and it took over an hour.
Cleaning the oven would have taken longer.
