Using a tire softener isn't usually something that's done trackside, instead it's usually done a few days beforehand so you wouldn't know who has softened their tires and who hasn't. Of course you could ask, but even then you might not always get the truth since it's a cheat code of sorts.

If it did nothing but make expensive slick tires last just a little longer, I can't see how it wouldn't be worth it if you possess more time than money.
