New tire squirm

Post  DLOwen on Wed Jun 19, 2013 2:44 pm

I've noticed several posts on several sites about tires feeling odd till they get some mileage on them. The cause is from the new tire treads having small tread blocks that are easily deformed. Check your bike tires, large tread blocks. Now look at the size of the tread blocks on your car tire, small tread blocks. Try pushing sideways on one of the tread blocks and notice how easily it deforms. they stiffen up after they get hot a few times. Just takes a little time and mileage. Check how your car handles before and after a new set of tires. Makes you wonder how people keep their car on the road till the tread stiffens up.
 Information can be a wonderful thing, Don

Boyeez, I done forgot myself the other day, taking off with the new Shinko 777 up front, and by habit, scraped the boards leaving the driveway.
I thot, "hey, that was STICKY!" S0oooo...I did a 30mph panic stop, and again; she nearly did a bagger stoppie! Say WHUT???
And to that end, the last 200 miles have been totally carving, tight stops and turns and just riding like regular - the FIRST 200 miles on the
tire.
So what's up with all that 'mold release' bizznizz? It's not there, at least on that sticky 777 model. Tire guy knew nothing about it, but has
heard of it. (mold release, that is) I got NO chikkin' strips on the tire from the first ride on it. And as usual; it don't SEE tar snakes; just like
they don't exist!
Man, do I LOVE me some stuff what works!!! bow

its been several years now that the manufacturers have been either washing the mold release off or not using it at all, not sure, they may use non stick molds
