Default autox in new tires?

hi guys... I just got my new tires at the door now and I would like to know if I should go tomorrow to the event on my old dry-out almost sleek or mount these now and run on the new ones tomorrow? I was going to go on the old ones, but the forecast is rainy tomorrow so I don't know. I'm also worry that I need to heat cycle the new ones a couple of times before going hard on them. Can the autoX gurus out there let me know what's best?
Thanks.

Put the new ones on. Don't over think the situation.

New ones for sure. They'll be just fine.

out to the tire shop now! Thanks.

I asked because I read somewhere that the mold release grease makes you skid. Just that.

Some street miles before wouldn't hurt. Not something to deter you from putting the tires on though.

Dude no need to heat cycle unless its a competition tire. What tires did you get? What wheels did you get since you sold the grids?

Tires are on. They slide a little bit, but seems I forgot how good this tires feel new! The old ones (same tires over 4 years old) felt like wood. This ones actually absorb the bumps.

Will be raining tomorrow, that's what the forecast is. I'm using my old black wheels (Team Dynamics pro race2) 15x7+35 and the tires are Nitto neo gens 205/50/15

sorry I sold the grids without letting you know sfl. I just got an offer I couldn't refuse.

Well I hope it doesn't rain tomorrow. Those tires should do good either way.

No worries about the wheels. Those are the last things I need right now and cash is tight. See you tomorrow.
