Most racers and track day riders want tire warmers to avoid cold tire crashes and to go fast right from the green flag. It is true that these are two clear advantages of using tire warmers, but there are other benefits that are equally important. A tire warmer provides the ability to tune and manage tires in the paddock beyond the grip offered on the opening laps. Chicken Hawk is one of, if not the best tire warmer brand available today. Made in the USA and used by most top-level AMA teams, you can't go wrong with Chicken Hawk. Some may assume tire warmers are just needed for racing, but they are a great tool at trackdays as well. Not only can you hit the track with an accurate hot pressure, you avoid cold tearing - a process where the tire isn't up to temperature and tears while getting up to operating temperature. Another benefit is that tire warmers save heat cycles, in preventing the tire from going through high and low variations in temperature between riding sesssions. Ultimately added heat cycles and cold tearing issues cost money in going through tires faster, when tire warmers will help minimize these issues and maximize your confidence, tire life and lap time improvement.
