Warming up tires

Anyone know approximately how long it takes for tires to warm up while riding your bike during an average commute type ride?

I'm just trying to get a better idea of how long I should wait to lean it and do some hard cornering when I'm leaving the house in the morning. Part of my ride is freeway/highway and part is rural.

Riding in the center wont warm up the sides of the tire. Unless you run tire warmers at the track, the first lap is always casual then progressively harder.


Street tires are designed for several, many heat cycles so the rubber isn't as prone to warm up as a racetire.

So unless you already start getting into it, the sides will only be luke warm.

The corsa IIIs take about 1 mile for me in the center and two curves in the corner to start gripping well.

The 2CT I have now has a faster warm up on the center but much less on the sides.


BTW... the side to side you see people do before cornering is only because they think its warming up their tires; or its because they are wise and trying to remove debre from the tires before cornering.

I over heard two expert track guys discussing this very issue. And to my surprise one was stating that like in the old days where you used to see guys on a bike doing quick left and right to warm up the tire are actions of the past. He continued with that the tires of today are made higher quality and better compound that all tires really need today to get properly warm is straight line “hard acceleration.” Hard acceleration and even hard braking would quickly warm the entire tire. I am no tire expert, but I have and would trust either of the guys I heard talking bout this. Just my .02.

motorcyclist mag did a test a while bike, side to side did very little to heat up tires, racers do it mostly to knock of the rubber "marbles" they collect.

to get the tires up to temp quickly, get to speed and stop quickly. several times. that gets tires heated up better then side to side weaving.

true riders know thats posing........lol
