NMMA tire heat cycles

Recommended Posts

How many heat cycles can a NMMA stamped tire go through typically before it is used up and no longer usable? Will tire softener bring it back to a usable state or does it just reglaze over.

 

thx,

Steve

I am not sure about the heat cycles. But when I ran a spec tire and it glazed over I would use a fine grinding wheel on a handheld grinder and buzz off the top layer and that seemed to help a lot. It wears the tire down faster but it makes them hook up a lot better.

hey good question, I have wondered the same thing. I have been using the same RR for half the season. I too have scuffed it but didnt notice any difference. logic would say it would have to make some difference. if you get caught with the tire softener you will get a DQ. I have seen them use the standard durometers ( on a regular basis) to check hardness. also heard that they had a sniffer at the nationals race. better not go that route.
