When i need to save some rims i use an old toaster oven in the garage and leave the tires/rims to "cook" at 350 usually until they start to smoke a tiny bit. They will usually easily pull off at that point. I don't do this in the house because of the smell and i use an old toater oven for this and engine bearing swaps because of the small amounts of smoke produced. I would not do this in an oven you are going to preare food in later. The fumes from cooking CA glue cannot be good for you. It usually takes only a few minutes to remove tires this way and the rims don't seem to be botherred. I do carefully cut the tire down the center first and remove the foam if you want to reuse it.
Of course the acetone works fine too but it also smells a bit.

I just buy pre glued/pre mounted tires. I think it works about the same cost as buying glue and acetone and the time I save can be spent drinking beer or something.

Last tires I glued were my FG F1 tires. what a huge job. all because I wanted to dye the rims black instead of having grey pfft. just about any 5th scale on road tire I have found to be the toughest task in gluing I have ever had but the f1 tires take the cake.
