What kind of statement is that?
Hey, IMO I should be able to redline from a cold start every day with no extra wear on my engine.
Dude, some things just ARE. They can't cast tires without greasing the mold or the tires wouldn't come out.
You may think your potenza's and firestones didn't need break in, but you're wrong. Maybe you didn't ruin them, but they'd likely have been better off if you had broken them in...
