I have burned the rubber from them when I was meting lead wheel weights that had valve stems mixed in, a good hot fire will burn all the rubber away. I bet a small pile of briq with a few valvestems in it would net nice clean rubber free valvestems and a stink that would clear the neighborhood :-).
On the wire twist pliers, even the soft electric fence wire is just about outside their ability....I have no experience with rebar wire so cannot say.
