Tire Soak - To Soak Or Not To Soak, That Is The Question Photo Gallery
Many racers utilize a rotisserie machine that is used to rotate the tire through a solution for a predetermined period of time. In this way, a precise measure of soak can be applied to the tire. The amount of time the tire soaks determines its ultimate softness when the tire is hot. Soak times vary depending upon the original tire hardness and the type of application (class of car and racetrack conditions).
