Default How do I scrub/break in race tires?

I just picked up some BFG R1's and wanted to know how to break them in.

Anyone have some info?

Thanks,
Nathan

45 minute to 1 hour non aggresive drive then take them of the car and let them cure for 24 hrs.

The easiest way I found to scrub in new tires was to dial in a goodly amount of toe-in up front, 1/4" or there abouts, and return the front camber to zero degrees, and drive them on the street.

I have a 12 mile commute to work each way, and over the course of a week, scrubed in a set very evenly. Did this on my Subie, Yugo, and CRX over the years.

Of course, all this work still won't equal the amount of scrub you'll get from just a couple autocross runs.

I usually drive about 50 miles or so on the freeway, and then take em off and let them sit for at least 24 hours.
