Volkswagen Polo Service & Repair Manual: Tires, Bringing to Mounting Temperature

  Caution
There is a risk of damaging tires with strong heat.
Never heat the tires with a heater or a hot air gun.
Warm tires with warm water or warm air (maximum 50 °C (86 °F)).
The optimum mounting temperature of a tire is between 15 °C and 30 °C (59 and 86 °F) on the inside of the tire. The temperature of the tire surface during the warm-up phase should not be considered as the interior temperature of the tire.
–  Store cold tires one day before installing in the workshop on an insulated surface a wood pallet or something similar. Store the tires separately so that the surrounding air can warm them quickly.
Warm-Up Time for Urgent Cases
Tires with an interior temperature over 0 °C (32 °F): minimum of two hours at minimum 19 °C (66.2 °F)
Tires with an interior temperature under 0 °C (32 °F): minimum of two and a half hours at minimum 19 °C (66.2 °F)
–  Clean up condensation occasionally with a cloth.
