Exactly the same thing as putting tyres in the oven. It's quicker,less hassle and there's less chance of damaging the skinwalls than laying the tyres on the oven floor.
If you click on 'full screen' on the video,you'll see the effect that the heat gun has on the tread.

Missed this the first few times around, so how's the flex seal doing?

Maybe slap a coat on the inside for some extra reinforcement.

Re: Skinwall Tire Preservation Project

Just came across this thread. Great idea! I have a set of early 80’s Predator tires that I would love to ride on but the sidewall’s look like they could use a reinforcement.
