I just saw an interesting video on Tire Warmers that Dave Moss posted up and thought some people might benefit from it.

A few years ago I figured out that if I put my warmers on just after the valve stem I always knew where the stem was and could check pressures quickly/easily. How many other members have stumbled on this 'trick' as well? Interesting that DM mentions it in his video too.

Fortunately I figured out the valve stem trick the first time i used warmers. I think it was Tracey who pointed that out for me.

Interesting that you have to test the tire temp with a probe. Makes sense but I thought surface temp was enough.
