I've probably posted this prior. But I always wire wheel or 60 grit sandpaper my tires now. Only takes about 1 minute per tire. Maybe there are better ways of doing it.
I had once brought my Guzzi wheels home after getting new rubber, early on in my riding life. I Installed the wheels and took the first corner on a downtown city block. Both wheels started sliding, almost lost it. I pulled over and freaked out a bit. I went back to the house, 1 block away, sanded the tires, no problem after that.
I'll never forget that brief "riding on ice" feeling.
