I use the bake method and it seams to work everytime ive done just watch out for your vent holes shooting out steam if you squeeze the tire.  Oh and get some gloves on that you can handle the tire when it comes out of the oven right away.  I usually go 350 degrees for 5-6 mins at a time and work it off in sections.

PS- Do it when the wife is not home so you can air the place out from the rubber smell ;D

I would be worried about melting it in the oven I would say dunk it in boiling water till it softens up enough to pull off
