Lots of variations around the same basic theme...

1. Clean tyres (I use lighter fluid)
2. Apply additive (whatever is popular is a good starting point, I usually use LRP/Nosram Asphalt)
3. Wrap tyre (I use paper towel normally)
4. Put warmers on tyre (50C for 30 mins is typical)
5. Wipe excess additive off tyre and race

Intereting... woulda paper towel not absorb a lot of the additve off the rubber? Or does that not matter since it is pressed against the tire and being baked in?

It does absorb some. It also holds it against the tyre. I've seen clingfilm used to get more of the additive into the tyre.

I don't. I doubt it makes much difference, but I prefer to be consistent and do the same prep routine each time.
