I was on redshiftmotorsports.com and was browsing for fun.

In the tire / wheel section there was a tire shaving service for new tires. They would shave the tread down to 4/32"

Question is why would you get new tires and then shave most of the rubber off ?!! I thought most sane people want tread to come with new rubber :?

less tread, less flex. tighter response.

also reduces heat buildup and chunking.

race tires can only go through so many heat cycles before theyre done, even if they have plenty of tread left, the grip wont be there. so why bother with that extra tread during the useful life of the rubber...
