I know that there are replacement Tamiya tires for these Cox cars, but what about replacement wheels?  I see some originals on eBay, bit the prices are nearly as much as a decent complete parts Bug or Buggy.

I recently bought a Baja Bug and both of the rear wheels were broken on the outer rims.  It seemed to me that the plastic was actually softened from years of sitting with fuel residue on them.

Also, are there any tips or suggestions for disassembling  the wheels to prevent damage to them?

I have had a few of these run across my fingers. I had one with the same problem you are describing. Pretty sure the two wheel halves are not separated easily. Probably glued, tires are easy enough to replace if you can grab them. Wheels come up often if you are patient.
