Tire break in procedure?

Hello,

I'm getting some new PSS installed. Are there any specific tire break in procedures that I should be aware of?

Thanks

Just drive... will get grippier as you put more miles on them (200-500 miles typically)

Burnouts! lol

Realistically, I don't think it matters. Just be prepared for a little less grip than expected until the release agent wears off. That said, my PSS were plenty grippy right out of the box!

I was not impressed with my pss they wore out too quick. My first set were ps2s and burnouts were something I did all the time. After buying my super sports I realized what kind of money it was replacing tires so i toned it down and stopped being an idiot.. Same wear time.. Smh. Performance wise I guess I can't complain but Michelin claims you get 30k miles out of the pss.. My car doesn't even have 30 on it yet lol anyway they are grippy but I gave it about 100 miles before I really used them.

Depending on your mileage, you should be able to get half of their tire tread life warranty (half because of staggered tires).

Cheers

drive normally and if the road is wet, then be careful as the tire is too new and the grip may not be what you can it has.

For me, it took about 1000km or 600miles to break them in.

Wait until 3am then do a smoky burnout preferably in a high end residential area! Then drive as normal.

A couple of hundred miles before the tires work off that anti-mold chemical and then you will be at max grip
