I tried all of these years ago...and the performace was never better than natural wear...
dope the tire with sauce and run it...tire warmers help as well..this will give you the longest wear and use of the tires...imo
Now for big events that require tread across and break in is not possible...here is my trick
new set of tires and open the package
remove the foams and put the tires in the bag
add Reino's Magic Marinade to the tires in the package
fold the top of the package and seal it(staples)
massage the tires and sauce in real good
put them out in the sun for a 1 hour or 2( but make sure you watch them, you dont want them to swell)
then remove the tires from the bag and clean with Reino's cleaner
let them completely dry
finally let them sit like I do for reg club mount
extra soft and very ready to turn fast laps off the start
draw back...tires wear really fast
