Chicken Hawk Auto Tire Warmers



What are Tire Warmers?

Electrically powered heaters that are designed to wrap around your tires so that they are brought up to operating temperature BEFORE you start the race.  Greatly Decreasing your chances of a 1st turn crash do to cold tires.  Tire Warmers can save you thousands from just ONE Crash.

What forms of racing are applicable for Tire Warmers?

Most popular is road racing for motorcycles and cars although we have made Tire warmers for flat-track, drag racing and even moto-cross.

Go Fast

Hot rubber grips the track surface better since not only does the co-efficent of friction increase, but the Tire’s ability to form the track surface through "mechanical keying" is increased

Set Hot Pressures

CHR Tire Warmers will get your tires surface AND carcass into the proper temperature range (same as you’ll see on the track). Set the Tire Warmers to the temperature you anticipate seeing on the track, allow them to "heat-soak" for an hour and set the Hot Pressure. When you hit the track, there will be minimal change. Getting your Hot Tire Pressure set on the Tire Warmers gets you going right away

Choose your Compound

When selecting which dry compound tire to run, the tire warmers can open up some options. For example a driver is torn between two compounds; tempted to use the softer one for the grip in the early laps, but concerned it may not make it race distance. By using the tire warmers the harder of the two choices can be used so that no disadvantage is present during the opening laps and the tire will last the entire track session or race.

Save Heat Cycles

When tires are heated & then cooled, a change occurs that can be seen, measured and felt. On some tires you can actually see a blue haze form over the tire as some "oils" migrate to the surface and oxidation occurs. On other tires one might observe much drier grayish haze depending on individual tire composition. Putting the tire though these hot to cold cycles reduces the tires grip, hardens the rubber and reduces its useful life. A tire warmer can keep tires hot or simply warm between track sessions and reduce the amount of heat cycles a tire goes through. If the tire is to see more than one track session it makes sense not to allow that tire to cool all the way to ambient; this can extend how many sessions the tire can perform at near maximum grip. By operating in this manner the tire’s grip life can be increased

"Heat Cycle" at home

Many tire brands recommend heat cycling the tire and then waiting a period of time before using the tire again (usually 24 hours). This assists in having the same compound tire be more durable once the chemicals become active and the tire is more "settled" on a molecular level. Tire Warmers let you perform "heat cycles" at your shop prior to leaving for the track
