Default Question about wheels ?

Wheels, ive been running on all asphalt tracks and in parking lot races where they usually clean em off and spray them down. I use paragon on my wheels normally... i know it makes them softer but my question is .... how much of the paragon should i be using on the wheels how long before the races, how many times during the day, should i wipe them off when im about to go race do i let them sit or whatever

heres my procedure for asphalt tire conditioning.
1. when i get back from a run i wipe the tires down and clean them of with denatured alcohol. maybe a little simple green and let the tires dry

2. I dont use paragon i use buggy grip or death grip. I wipe one or the other on the tires and let that soaak in for like 10 minutes.

Thats it and it works good for me.
