Trouble is, the sticky feeling doesn't mean anything in the real world.

Tyres are always really difficult to get out of their cellophane packets, but try those tyres on carpet and they're always rubbish.

We had one guy (CCFM) put stuff on his tyres that was so sticky he manged to get one to stick to the 45deg angled piece of fencing by pushing it against it.
Put it on all 4 tyres like usual, went out it and found it was utter crap

Most additives just seem to be slimey when added to the tyres but it appears to be how it's contents react with the rubber.

At present my favourite is Tweak.
