making that front tire grip a little while longer


skeetmyster

This will make your front tire last when you have no money and a big race soon. Take a drill bit that is just a little smaller than the nob and drill every other nob. This will make the tire clean and grip like new. But don't drill too deep. It wont take much at all; just a little nip of the tire (about 1/4" deep). This took me like 2 hour, but was worth it. The tire lasted me 4 races with 2 days of practice between them.

      Ride-On Tire Protection System ("Ride-On TPS") is a line of orange gel-like tire sealants (tyre sealants) and tire balancers containing fibers six times stronger than steel that coat the inner liners of tires. This protective tire sealant coating is formulated to prevent flats caused by punctures, hydrodynamically balance tire/wheel assemblies (with or without wheel weights) for the life of a tire, extend tire (tyre) life by lowering tire (tyre) operating temperatures and helping tires (tyres) maintain their set-point pressures by eliminating porosity air loss. Colored a distinctive, cheerful shade of orange, Ride-On TPS comes in nine tire sealant formulations for use in high-speed, on-road as well as slow-moving, off-road applications. Whether in your motorcycle, car or SUV, over-the-road or off-road use, in brand-new tires (tyres) or retreads, tires (tyres) that are on vehicles or in your ready rack, we have a solution that will work for you or your fleet.
      Here at Ride-On, we are dedicated to providing high tech tire sealant products that are both affordable and extremely useful in avoiding accidents. Ride-On tire sealant requires only a single application for the entire life of the tire, and prevents flats from occurring after punctures from nails, glass or other debris on the road. By working with the centrifugal force and internal pressure of a spinning tire, the tire sealant is able to immediately fill in any holes in the tire and prevent air from escaping, thus allowing the driver to keep driving. The tire sealant itself is composed of a compound that is six times stronger than steel, yet it is safe and free from any chemicals that could harm the o-zone layer. You can call it amazing; you can call it the orange wonder goo, but there's no denying that it works!
