Default Can tire warmers "melt" glue?

I've been told that tire warmers can make the glue soft, is that true? It should be a problem with unregulated tire warmers???

That shouldn't be a problem at all, the tires heat up when you run the car anyway, all tire warmers do is get them up to temp faster.

Sounds reasonably, but some tire warmers goes up to 60 and maybe 70 degrees celsius. My tires dont get that hot, while racing.

I think the melting point of the glue is alot hoter then when you run it or put the warmer on. I used to take offroad tores offf in the oven and then had to be preaty hot for the glue to crystalize or come off
