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...

For whatever reason, some tires seem to perform well from day one, while others improve gradually over the first 1,000 miles or so.
