Yes sir. We'll if you just want the rims, get a flat tip exacto blade and scrape them off. It's been a while but I got something in the works to get back into crawling. I saw some pics of my old rig from the last murrel park run,and want back in lol:thumbs_up:

Soaking in acetone for a day or so is another method. This may kill chrome (not sure), so depending on the wheels this may not be an option. How long did you bake them?

It was good meeting and running with you today.

Yeah I saw he had it posted on clist. If he wasn't asking so much I'd buy it back. And then seeing it on the forum just got the gears turning. I'm working on an tonkA rv crawler thingy it should be the next thread

The acetone works great and it does remove chrome from the wheel but is by far the best way

I thought you were supposed to bake at low temp (200 or so) for a longer time with wheels on foil. Haven't tried this method, so was curious what worked/didn't.

acetone worked very good for me, I do put a rock on top the the wheel/tire to push the item all the way down over night. Done this to few tire on the 1.9 MAXXIS RTR, and came out very nice. I did one wheel at a time didn't want to use too much acetone.
