Engine oil on tire

I got the rear tire soaked in motor oil when i cracked my case.
Does the oil soak thru and just resurface are can i scuff it and dosome burn outs and still use the tire?

Its hard to say depends on the tire and if you cleaned if off right away. I would get the oil leak fixed and take it easy on the tire and just test it out? Most tires are fairly well resistant to chemicals and such.

98% of all Harleys ever sold are still on the road. The other 2% made it home.

The oil will soak into the tire, get rid of the tire, ask yourself, is it better to pay for a 135$ tire now, and be safe or be sorry later and pay for severl hundred dollars in bodywork.

i vote for coating the underside of the bike with WD 40 so the rubber wont stick, then doing a crazy ass burn out. dont forget to post the video on you tube

I just got my rear tire soaked for the 2nd time thanks to my oil pan breaking, looks like a smokey burnout is in my near future!
