Right angle grinder with metal cut off wheel. Right through the tire. If you want to save the rims, pull the bead away from the rim a little when you get to that point. By the time 98% of the tire is cut through, the tire de-beads with the heel of your foot..

Sawzall, bon fire...

I like the swazall over the grinder as there is less smoke and flying rubber.

If you are going to put new tires ont he rims, they will remove and dispose of the old ones for free. Why not just wait until you are getting new tires?

A sawzall with a metal cutting blade will zip right through a tire (and the rim if you are not careful).

Around here they charge $5 fee to disspose of the old tire.

I believe the OP wants to scrap the rim (s)

Yeah most tire places will charge a disposal fee. Perhaps a recycling center might do it.

If he's trying to recycle them it would be a waste of money to go to a tire shop just take a razor knife and cut about 6 in or so up from the rim all the way around them flip and do it to the other side once you get it down it only takes about a min to do and most scrap yards won't say anything about the little bit of tire on them we were just out tonight and cut about 100 of them in about 2 hours with breaks

how would this get the tire off, all it would do is squish it against the ground.

A wood splitting wedge and sledge breaks the bead well.

Never hurts to talk to your local high schools auto shop. The kids may enjoy the practice
