Speaking of new tires, why are there always colored lines in apparent reason
on them? I see this on new car tires too....doesn't keep me up at night

Actually most modern tire mfgs don't use mold release anymore. The
slime on the tires is most likely due to rolling around oily shops,
IMO. Washing them down is a good idea in any case. :)
