Simply put Glassdoctor's way is the best=bar non. bake em' sit back and wait, and burn something else -n wait. Acetone takes time and money, and is a household HAZZARD! Why wait to see results when in 15 minutes the job is done?

I will say that some guys want to remove tires to put them on fresh rims and foams.... and some are afraid that baking might do something to the tire, like change the rubber somehow. I can see how that may be... I don't know what the heat tolerance of the rubber is etc, who knows....

You can't see any change.. so I really doubt it does anything. And I guess you might say the same about 4 days exposure to acetone affecting the rubber?

Just wanted to throw that out there.
