There is no need for it on rubber tyres after they have warmed up properly during the race.
The additive is designed to soften the tyres for the first few laps which helps with grip and keeps the laptimes more consistant right from the beginning.

I just got a set of the Muchmore Sweep 24s. I run pavement in northern Illinois and 32s were too loose, and the LHS said the 24 was the tire of choice for the lot.

It should be the last set of unglueds I buy though, that was a much less pleasurable experience than a set of truck tires...

What was the outside temp when you raced?

It's been in the 80s for the most part of the summer here.

Yeah I've seen those three digit temps on the weather maps. Enjoy!

Hmmm, more specifically, would greens be better than blue in colder weather? Rubber on asphault...

The new insert cuts down on wear. Some people claim that they run faster with them, but I can't say for sure.
Is the same concept true of the "green" tires? Rated as 28 but really 32 or something like that?

And on a related note , when will the greens be available again?
