You don't cut it you grind it! If done on a lathe you turn the rubber
part and run a high speed grinder against it. It's insures it will be
concentric and gives a smooth surface.
the alternate is to spin the tire and work against a hard surfaced

disconnect the motor and power it from a supply rather than risk cooking
the drive electronics.

that is an issue too. the solution is to demount the moter and work off
