Re: Storing slicks in freezing temperatures?
They should be good to go with a thorough inspection showing no defects or cracks. If cracking does occur, it would most likely be near the edge of the tire or surface cracking. By the edge I mean the part that sits in inside of the bead of the wheel. It's a good chance the internal structure of the tire wouldn't crack before the outside judging by the lattice structure of it. You'll most likely experience surface defects before anything else.
However, if the slick is really cold (they become really hard), and if the slick is deformed/bent/distorted/twisted, that could lead to a serious crack or internal defect that the eye may not be able to see. Be careful as it states it on the label. I'm paraphrasing of course.
Go to the track when it's warm, and commence to a good tire inspection. I was on the phone with Pirelli yesterday.
Chillin'... while the Lord watches over me!
I love my R6, but...there's no buts...
