Heat Cycling for Racing & Competition Tires

Your competition-style tires need a careful break in treatment in order to maximize their features and benefits. The first time competition tires are used is exceptionally important for these tires. If initially driven on too aggressively or exposed to excessive heat, it can lead to reduced traction and uneven tread wear. Heat cycling will increase a competition tire’s performance and longevity when performed correctly.

A heat cycling machine rolls the tires to generate a uniform, gradual temperature buildup throughout the tire tread evenly, ensuring that the tire is not exposed to excessive heat. The tires then cool down at a steady pace. After a rest period, the tires are sufficiently broken in and ready for competition.

This is not a service we offer, however heat cycling your new competition tires by a trained professional can optimize performance on the track.
