I always scrub a new tire. That street is slicker than owl also. BTW I would check the tire pressure. I left that hole down Spencer with 50 psi in the rear. It was riding funny so I checked the pressure when I got home. 50 PSI. They didnt even think anything of it when I called them to let them know.

They'll get you if you are paying attention, that's why a new tire burn out is always in order .
