Get softer tires.

Speed is only fiction but a 130+km/h MRS4 is for real.

Did this 30 years ago and still works today. Combo of Turpentine and Oil of Wintergreen (about 10 to 1), apply liberally to tire, stick em in a baggie and leave them set for a few days in a warm spot. It'll soak all the way to the rim without eating the glue (not too much or it'll actually shrink the foam) and it'll stick to anything.
