i've used the oven way for few years and works great does leave a small amount of rubber smell but not too bad ....I usually preheat to 400, 450 and turn off then throw in the tires for a 1/2 hour.
they get hot...I take them off when they are hot so...I use a old pit towel or gloves, to get the job done.

i like the oven method as well... the tires will come off easier if you do it while they're still warm.. i set it to 400 and leave the tires in there for about 15 minuites with the oven set to 400... i then turn the oven off and leave them in there for another 20 minuits then i use an old oven mit or work gloves to peal the tires off the rim while they're still warm... there's no getting around the smell though...

The oven method is definateley the best way to go IMO...The rubber just pops off the rim like butter
