  • Why do tyres get glossy?

  • Even if they don鈥檛 use a release agent, tyre manufacturers use chemicals in the curing process to make the rubber flow better and reduce defects in the surface and tread pattern. This results in slick or glossy surfaces, which applies to both motorcycle and car tyres (see a list of top car tyres in RatedRadarDetector ).

  • Do you need to lean your bike over to warm up tyres?

  • Despite the fact that most racers weave around on warmed-up tyres, you actually don鈥檛 need to lean the bike over on to the new and glossy surface to heat up that part of the tyre. Acceleration and braking is more effective as it puts stress on the tyre carcass which heats up the whole tyre, not just the bit touching the road.

  • Should I wash or sand my tyres?

  • But tyre manufacturers do not recommend washing or sanding your tyres. They go to great lengths to design and engineer tyre treads, so the last thing you should do is attack the tread surface with a belt sander!

  • Is it safe to use chemical wipes to clean tyres?

  • It is also a bit risky using any chemical solution on a tyre as you do not know if it will be applied evenly and how it will react with the tyre. A wipe with a dry cloth is fine. Notice that race bikes leave the pits with shiny new tyres that have not been belt-sanded or washed with any chemicals.
