Well, it's formulated to clean without drying them out. If you use the S&M cleaner and sauce then bag 'em, there is NO reason you shouldn't get 15-20+ good runs out of them.

After that, they are still great basher / practice tires.

polesitter, the oil softens the tire thereby giving it more grip. The key is don't use 10w30 from your local autozone. All levels of racing use petroleum based traction additives.
Unless all traction compounds are outlawed by your local life size short track most guys are putting tires in a purpose built ovens with petroleum based traction compounds on the inside of their tires to work it in. Then they do surface prep at the track on race day. Its a real big deal in racing that have short sprint style qualifying.
