Hi All, It has just been pointed out to me my tyre is nearing the end of its life! I'll be doing a track day in a month or two so am planning on buying a new rear tyre asap so it is worn in for the day. My riding is sports road riding i guess i.e. i dont tour on it. I'm running pilot power tyres at the moment which are good and i'll probably use them agaion unless someone recommends something better??? My main question though is that i've heard acetone can be used to wear in the tyre quickly as it removes that slippery surface which is on the tyre when it is bought. Has anyone done this, does it work? In principle ive got no issue in wearing the tyre in by leaning a little more every corner, but i dont want to hit a slippery spot on the track that hasn't been worn in! Anyone else got any other cure besides acetone?
