As stated you run the risk of damaging Scaly Wheels when removing them from their knurled axles and it is best to leave well alone. If you are adament that the NSR axle spacers MUST be used, try dropping the Scaly Wheels in hot/warm water for a few minutes before you attempt to "twist & pull" the wheel off the axle.
Worth noting that some wheels are better than others - Indy car wheels are pretty good whilst the smaller (and older designed) wheels on the American classics (Camaro etc) will split if you look at them sideways!

"If you tug off Scalex wheels you'll never get them on right again as the axle ends are hexed"

Simply not true Screwneck

With care I have successfully removed and replaced hundreds of these wheels and raced them very competitively afterwards on wood tracks. As already stated simply twist and pull the wheel off, warm the wheel first in hot water if you feel it is necessary.
When replacing the wheel apply a small amount of low viscosity superglue on the axle, then twist and press back on gently but firmly.
I will admit that as Screwneck implies they can be a problem and every so often you will get a failure but hey you have to take a few risks in life - thats what its all about - LOL
