Acetone. Sealed in a tub of it, as mentioned. You can buy the pure stuff, or the pink cheap stuff that girls use on their nails. It all evaporates, so the cheap stuff is fine.

you can boil them off but you need good gloves to hold the wheel whilst its still hot

I did read somewhere that freezing works but I've never tried it.

BTW, with the acetone, don't fill the tub, quarter of an inch in the bottom is enough. Its the vapour that does the work.

Baking gives off cyanide and stinks.

i've successfully removed tyres to be re-glued on different rims with acetone. cleaned up quite well actually. you just need to stick it in the tin for a while, then part the tyres as much as you can with your fingers, then replace it in the tin as the bead comes unstuck. afterwards the tyre bead and rim will clean up with some acetone on a tissue.

Personally I like divine intervention. You just put them on the side and wait for the tyre to magically remove its self from the rim. No toxic fumes and no murder by the missis.....

You could use the glue Neil was using on Sunday, and they just fall off.
No need for Accetone or the Oven ....

+1 for acetone method. I put a set in a tub with cheapo £1 nail varnish remover (with acetone on ingredients) Just stuck it on fridge n forgot about it. No smell this morning, gave em a shake off outside, any liquid on them quickly evaporated (no chemicals on my fingers ) and they peeled away real easy.

Dunno about my rims being brittle but Im yet to crack 1.

My 2 cents. I'd likely forgot about them in the oven and burn them/stink out kitchen or something.
