Thread: Tire Prep

  1. #1

    Question Tire Prep

    Is there a time/track condition when you should cold sipe rather than hot sipe or vise versa? Do you do vertical sipes on fronts only and horizontal/both on rears? (American racer tires on super late)

    I don't know about privilege showing ,every cold sipe I've ever seen was not easy on the wallet compared to a standard heated grooving iron

    I like the ones that use std razor blades. I haven't hot siped in years.

    I'm no tire expert, but I sipe based on what I think will get the proper wear and heat. That includes depth and direction and density of cuts.
    Droop isn't the problem.
