Default tire truer

i have made adapters to turn down my 1/12 wheels on a shop lathe, my question is- what is the actual surface used to cut down foam tires on commercial truers? is it a blade, a grinding surface or a file surface? my other question is should i use traction compound when cutting down my tires to soften them up?
thanks-Sean
