Dirt teams find tire soaking to be especially useful. A glaze will often appear on the surface of a dirt tire after a heat cycle, and the team must remove this hard crust before the next use. It is suggested that when using the treatments, the tire will not glaze over as easily, saving a ton of work. For that reason alone, tire soaking is well worth the effort. If the series uses only one design and hardness of tire, a team can adjust the tire characteristics by using the treatments.
