well, whoever is saying that is obviously leaving them on the tire for too long, they are not ment to be left on the tire, if you use them right, and only leave the turned on, on the tire for 5 or 10 minutes not exactly sure on yours, they will not "overheat" the tire

Yea, just feel the tires, and when they feel about right just take them off.

well technically you would be feeling the tire warmer, unless you took the warmer off to feel the tire then put it back on, anyways, running off lets say a standard 7.2V battery pack, put it on there when they call half-way point for the race, ahead-of-the-race-ahead-of-yours, yeah thats it

My bad! Yea, take the warmers off, feeling the warmers would be pretty pointless.
