I drained a set by removing the valve stems and letting them drain in the driveway. One valve stem was completely rotten. Drilled that out. It did a good job killing grass and weeds in the driveway, but the weeds grew right back after it rained. I managed to drain enough without any fancy tools or tricks that I could pry the tires off and remove the tubes. As has been said, the tubes were then completely drained and trashed. I did save a few clean flat pieces of rubber to make gaskets. Tires and rims had to be thoroughly cleaned. Rims needed major repairs and refinishing. I put them back together with dry tubes (just air). It's a worker, but if I ever get around to loading that set of tires, it will be with non-corrosive washer fluid or beet juice.
