One thing that is important that you don't discuss is...does he make it through the night? If so, then he is ready but are you or the rest of your house or even daycare to deal with potty training? Once you start, don't go back and forth as that only confuses the concept. First, know about the night time issue and then make a plan. I potty trained over a weekend and technically in one day. I think the younger they are the easier it is. Less questions and they are not pushing the independence factor on you as much. Make sure you discuss with daycare if this is something that occurs for your son. Let me know if you want more tips on what to do for potty training in a SHORT amount of time!
If he isn't ready though, having a discussion with him about preparing for it. Maybe the diapers you get itch or bother him and that is why he is trying to take them off. You can try the tighter and backwards concept as my friend did that as well. Also, putting clothes on that he can't get off to get to his diaper works too.
Good luck. I know it is frustrating!

my daughter is 16 months. She has been pulling her nappy off since before she turned 1. Now she will only pull if off, after she has done something in it. since that, i've started to put her on the toilet and potty.

another thing that halps with a child I baby sit is if you put the diaper on somewhat tightly backwards, then he cant take it off

Ya know I never had that happen with my sons, it took forever for them to ditch diapers! But a friend of mine did have that problem and she got her son a potty and before he was 2 he was using it all the time. So I would say go for it, get the potty and show him that is where to go when he needs to go. =) I hope that helps. Good Luck!
