    heat cycling is referring to the process that happens when a new DRAG/RACE tire is used. Think of it as seasoning a cast iron pan if you will.

    The first heat cycle helps bond the new rubber for even wear and last longer because the tires will wear evenly.

    Now you know why cars at the track do those long burn outs sometimes they are heat cycling the new wheels. 10- 15 sec.

    Would I pay for it I doubt it up to you I would rather do the burn out :)

    Have fun
