Default Breaking in rubber tires

What techniques are there to more quickly break in a set of new rubber tires for carpet? Thanks

what i do is trim the center molding bead flat.. the little flappy stuff in the center of the tire.. then glue the side walls so they dont come unglued. have some fine grit sand paper. lay it on the table use a circular motion and scuff the hole tire. run the tires for 2 min. on the track. return to pits rotate tires and run another 2 min. return to pits and rotate the tires for the last time. then run them for 6 min. as a qualifier. i don not every run longer then a heat or main time. then you know what the tires do or car does over the 6 min.. jeremy

Put them in the tire truer, take a piece sand paper and sand the seam off in the middle. Then run them in on some practice laps. Normally takes about 2 battery runs.

Default tires

I have had good luck gooping them up with traction compound every other day for a week and keeping them in a ziploc you can still run them this just helps speed the process along without sanding.
