Default brushed motor and tyre questions


I tried doing a search but could could not find the answer i was after. So here goes is it important to run in a brushed motor and what is the best way? Also with the tyres they have on the market and the rubber tyres what does the deg mean on there label? This is what i think it is but please correct me if i am wrong. Is it to do with the running temperature of the tyre or the maximum temperature the tyre can handle.

Thank you for your responses in advance.

thanks for that the tyre information was really help full and so was the info on motors. Sorry if i did not clarify my question. When i mean run in on a brushed motor i was meaning on a new motor, do you have to wear it in to get the most power out of it.

Yes, you want to break in a brushed motor to seat the brushes fully. I used to use a fan mounted to the armature and run the motor at 3volts for about 5 minutes with a couple drops of comm drops to do this. After this I would spray out the comm and reoil the bushings, but do not remove the brushes while doing this you want the brush to stay where it's at. If you change/remove the brushes or clean/cut the comm you will need to repeat the breakin procedure.
