i do bake mine at 350 and it works great. preheat to 350. throw the tires on an old cookie pan for 8 minutes. pull them out and take em off the rim. i have never hurt a tire doing it this way.

It is best to do it when the women are going to be out of the house for a while-gives you time to wash the circles off the good cookie sheet too.I have in desperation done it in the gas grille outside but you have to use a thermometer and watch the temp.

Best thing is to find an old toaster oven where the toaster part no longer works. The oven part will usually outlast the toaster. Keep it in the garage or workshop and then use it outside so the wife won't complain about the smell.

Of all the methods described I found that the only reliable, cleanest and safest way to remove the tires is the baking method. The best part is that the rims, tires and foams are almost always reusable. (The foams will sometimes just be dead and dried out due to age and not from the baking.)

Neither debonder nor boiling has worked for me. The only thing that worked for me was baking.

Hmm .... one hour of boiling vs. 10 minutes of baking. I think that the baking method wins again in the arena of energy efficiency. And you may still be able to reuse the insert if it hasn't degraded over time and use.

My tank of propane would get used up anyway. You can reuse the inserts from boiling but you have to let them dry a while first. (Air dry for a few days or blow-dry for a few minutes). And boiling doesnt stink up the trailer or require cleaning anything. (I use an old pot for it, my mom would kill me if i used a good one!)

I boiled mine for an hour also but no luck. I use CA Tire glue which seems to be stronger than regular CA. Baking works every time and doesn't soak the foam.

I use CA tire glue also. Oh and it's stronger because somehow they have rubber in it, so it flexes instead of breaking.
