You just want to remove the center seam so the tires are more consistent from run #1. Don't sand the whole tire.

That's what I've heard. Never heard of anyone sanding the whole tire though. Personally, I use the track. After about a run the tire is at its best IMO.

You can use 800 grit and a power sander to clean up a tyre that's been badly grained up
