Tire Break In & Tire Review
Tires are composed of many layers of rubber, steel and fabric. Because of these different components, your new tires require a break in period in order to ensure that they deliver their normal ride quality and maximum performance. A release lubricant is applied to the tires as they are cured, to prevent them from sticking in their mold and some of the lubricant stays on the surface of the tires reducing grip until it is worn away. In order to allow the other hankook optimo tire components to begin working together and to allow the mold release lubricant to wear off, five hundred miles of easy acceleration, cornering and braking will do the break in. Do not be surprised if your new tires are a little slower to respond even if you use the exact and the same brand of tire as before. It is important to note that your old tires probably had very little tread depth remaining when you felt it was time to replace them and any car racer who has tread rubber shaved off of his tires will tell you that low tread depth tires respond more quickly as compared to the new, full depth tread of tires. Be extra careful when having new sets of tires and exploring its capabilities. Note that every tire requires a break in period of five hundred miles for finest performance.
