Here's a quick, painless, and safe way to remove the chrome from most RC car & truck wheels, leaving a clean white slate that you can either leave as-is or dye to the color of your choice.

Should work equally well on any modern wheels.

Yeah seriously! I learned about those the hard way. Put a set of Evader wheels (the ones used on XXX-Tyranus) in a pot of acetone in like '04, left them overnight to remove the tires, came back and all I had left were tires, and some milky off-white substance at the bottom of the bucket that was the completely dissolved residue of what was once wheels Fortunately most wheels are nylon, but it's worth testing 'em in advance no matter what.

well thats a good tip for getting good tires off of duratrax rims then.

and I hate that you made this, as I will likely be trying it on my rusty and promptly dying the rims red lol

No joke on those duratrax rims eh! I was baking some to remove the tires, did it just like all ther rims I had to do, after the time was up all I had left was some warped useless rims.

Acetone does attack Lexan. If you just get a drop on it, it just makes the surface cloudy. You can wet-sand it back pretty decently. I haven't tried soaking Lexan in acetone, but would assume that given enough time, it'd dissolve.
