Not greasy. Just some soap to see where air is leaking.

I used several sets of Angels on my Blackbird. I was always happy with the grip but never got more than 5k out of the rear. The centre would also wear down extremely quickly with little warning. I once set off on a 200 mile trip and before going checked the back tyre and reconed I had at least 500 miles left. When I got back the centre was down to the banding with no rubber left in several sections around the circumference. Every rear did the same.  :021:
