Some people em. Never tried this so I am not sure to say for how long.
I did ask if it trashed the foam. They said no, just wrap em in a paper towel and microwave em.

Personaly, I use the oven trick.
It realy dose not stink up the place and only takes about 15 min.
I heat the oven to 350, put them in for 15 min on a cookie sheet I cover with foil, pull em out and with some good heavy gloves pull the rubber off right away.

I have done this 4 times now, never a problem.

Just be carefull of bending the rims, they are soft when hot.

If the rubber will not pull from the rim freely, put them back in the oven for anouther 5 min.

OH YEA, center rack.

buy some acetone from canadian tire, put the tires in a closed container, put acetone in to cover all tires then cover with tight lid and leave overnight. come back in morning and your tires will fall off the rim. im told this wont work on losi pink compound tires. i did this many times and it works awesome.
