I used to cheat when changing tires - I'd put my wheels on the warmers. When a tire is 180 degrees, it spoons on and off like butter.

Zaph, I always try to change mien , in the summer, and I'll leave them in the hot sun for a few hours. Even that helps, but I'll bet a warmer is amazing.

Video from MC Garage (pretty sure its made by Motion Pro) for the Motion Pro bead breakers: they say before starting to remove the tire, leave your wheel/bike out in the sun for an hour if you can.
