I run in a class were everyone has 1 brand tire to run, and we have some tires that have lied for awhile, so they've gone hard, but i heard that i could soften them up with some wd40?
We don't want super soft or anything, but the tire has gone hard over time, and we heard that using wd40 on it would work, sounds like you are saying the same thing. We don't wanna spend money on preps, we're from Denmark.WD-40 will soften some just from putting oils back into the tire. Really depends on what youre trying to accomplish on whether to go this route or to use a brand name prep line. WD-40 is cheap, and it does have a time and place though.
After racing I wash my tires with a scouring pad. After they dry I spray liberal amount of WD-40 on them. I don't bother wrapping them since my tires get used again pretty quickly. If you are going to wrap them let them dry completely before you do. WD-40 will leave a nice "grippy" feeling tire ready to be prepped and run.
May not be the best approach but works for me so far
WD-40 will not soften a tire, if it does maybe just maybe a 1/4 on the duro. Go buy some prep like goat or BTGP from Trac-Tac. WD-40 is a good conditioner to put oil back in the tire...JMO...I run in a class were everyone has 1 brand tire to run, and we have some tires that have lied for awhile, so they've gone hard, but i heard that i could soften them up with some wd40?
