Popular with the karting crowd, also used it when racing formula cars. Does seem to work.

Their web-site says to apply (using a paintbrush or roller) 3 coats per day for 3 days, at least 24 to 48 hours prior to a track event.

For $40 a bottle, I'm thinking it might be worthwhile to try it on tires that have a day or two left, or on tires that sat in the garage for 10 months.
