If this "car tyre" system works for you, fine. There is no absolute, one-way-only method of composting, but it helps to ensure success by following a few basic guidelines.
I would not call the "car tyre" system a "Humanure" system. There is no way the humanure can become hot enough for it to be called thermophilic. It is more accurately a "Worm Composting" toilet.
If you add sufficient carbonaceous material after each use, that is a benefit in producing quality compost. Generally speaking, if you are using a toilet that does not smell or cause any unpleasant polution, on a sustainable basis, then it's working well.

Interesting. How long have you had one in use? Also how cold is your area and have you checked the compost temperature at intervals?

I have had some success using car-tire compost bins. They were free to make. Easier to empty. No leaching from rubber. Fit a small space close to the toilet. I constructed one of these in minutes. (English spelling is Car "Tyre"). Photo here http://www.providentliving.org.nz/car-tyre-compost-bin/
What do you think of these?
