How long do we need to ride to warm tires - October 15, 2008, 01:01 PM

After riding for exactly 3.8miles I was in a sweeper(dont wanna mention the speed) and found my rear slid a little in lean .. wasnt even rolling on.. just got the diablo supercorsa race take offs .. is there something like a layer forming on the tires if they have been sitting for a while?

You ride too slow for SuperCorsa takeoffs! They will never heat up from your riding ability.

Maybe you leaned over to far and was riding on the part of the tire that had Armor All on it? I dont know, I was just putting my 2cents in.

I think most people believe they ride fast enough to heat up their tires on the street and have they have improved grip buying a race tire with a few heat cycles on them. This is normally NOT the case! These take-off tires are best suited for faster riders who may do a few track days on them.

I ride street tires on the track...that is how slow i ride and obviously my street speeds are slower. I will continue to buy a decent street tires (Corsa III, Conti SportAttacks, Pilot 2CTs, etc.) for the street!

The key is understanding how tires work, heat cycles, compounds, etc.

PS To all of you that weave to warm up your tires....KNOCK IT OFF - it doesn't do shit!

Takeoffs tend to develop a glaze that has to be worn off.

Tires warm up during acceleration and braking. How well they warm up is completely dependent on how aggressively you are doing both and on the temperature of the road.

As it gets colder it will take longer, however a race compound tire is never going to properly heat up on the street even under aggressive riding esp when temps drop.

Also check your PSI, as temps drop your tire pressure will too.

Why do Formula 1 racers do it? Get a feel for the steering, suspension?
I have heard many announcers who are ususally xracers talk about heating up the tires...
