Just a bit of NSR tire oil. No microwaves were injured during this process.

It does a good job if you give it a little time.

Just careful truing and then a clean/wipe with lighter fluid. After the first few laps of testing the shine from the lighter fluid is gone, so I do not really consider that treatment.

The challenge with any treatment is to get the car to handle and the tyres to remain consistent over a period of almost a year.

You can make the tyres to be super sticky and tune the chassis to suit, but then the car is to tight when the tyres becomes less sticky later.

A few years ago, Heli_ca had a set of tyres that was just unbelievable, polished like a piece of marble, and sticky like glue, I did not think it would last the season, but it did and he won the series!

This year I went from Ultra Grips to Super Grips and you did the exact opposite. Will be interesting to see how this turned out.

My new NSR tires ( 5212 ) this year looked different. Molding looked a lot cleaner. At least the bloomin' things were round. But I noticed they were very shiney in the Blister Pack. Seemed to be some type of " Skin " that had formed over them.

They did not seem very soft at all.... They initially had VERY little grip. But after about 200 laps of running and massaging with NSR oil they finally started to come in. Hopefully they will get better with more run time.....

With NSR rubber tires, I think there are fairly big differences in Batches. And also how long they sit on a shelf is very important.

I know from my days of racing real cars on Goodyear and Hoosier slicks that batches often differed. And you always wanted the freshest tires possible. Tires that were only made two weeks ago were a lot stickier than tires made 3 months ago. They cure and harden as they sit.

UV does nasty things as well.
