Track conditions, surfaces, wood, plastic. On wood the type of paint will make a difference. Air wheels work best for us and NSR rubber
Excellent guide but I think you should add some pics to help people visualise what you are describing as blistering.
I have started a thread not a long ago here. Very interesting tips there as well.
Personally my best tyres come from a very smooth finish even after treating the tyres with oil. My gut feeling (and I am surely wrong here) is that any "blistering" would cause the rear tyres to bounce and produce too much vibration. That is why I am really curious to see a close up pic of this blistering effect!
thanks for writing this.
