Can your tires become compromised in the baking chamber?

I recently had some hood damage. The hood will most likely have to be replaced.

When this does get repainted, they will have to bake it at some very hot temperatures. Is there any risk to the tires when they do this? I just bought 4 new pair and dont want to subject them to this extreme temperature if there could be a problem.

Thanks for any advice.

Or simply take the tires/wheels off...

If the temps go above 200 degrees and stay there for more than a few minutes I personally would not allow the tires to go through that.
