getting rid of flat spote on slicks

Post by Pacer377 » Wed Nov 20, 2013 1:35 pm

I have a set of 33 18.50 et streets, brand new. left them sit too long on the car now they have flat spots. Any sugestions on how to get rid on them? these only have about 10 miles of street driving on them hate to see them go.

a big long smoky burnout. if that doesnt do it, then time to replace them.

Just drive around with them so that they warm up a bit like we had to do with the bias ply nylon tires before all this new structure material that flexes better along with steel belted radial tires, etc.

same thing used to happen with firestone wide ovals many many years ago. would get a f/s overnite .... just motor around and f/s would disappear once warm
