Hi, I just bought a set of new tyres and they are getting fitted next Tuesday. A this is my first set of newies, can anyone suggest any tips on scrubbing them in. I have read different articles saying you don't need to scrub new tyres in as they are made different these days from yesteryear (something to do with the moulds they used to use/teflon in new wheels). Suggestions were also to scrub them in by quick, straight acceleration and braking and also riding on them cautiously for 100/200 klms etc until the tread was a bit buffed. I am planning on taking it easy on my new wheels regardless until I feel comfortable in their grip but I thought i'd just seek some comments from more learned riders. Thanks.
