Too fast of a cool down from being hot. Happen to me last year at the track when it started to rain, the water cools a nice tacky hot tire down really fast leaving a blue color behind. Basically all the oils and chemicals coming to the surface.

Just FYI if you are running 32 hot you are running the wrong pressures. From Dunlop directly


Front 32-34 Cold
Rear 30-32 Cold

but how would running even lower presure keep the tire cool?

Steves point was you're running the tire pressure too low, causing the tire to get excessively hot. Bumping up the pressure would probably help especially on those really hot days.

I was just trying to figure out what causes the blueing of tires. I've never seen that before. And if there was a problem with them.

And steve was just pointing out that you wen't running the recommended tire pressures. The blueing is caused by heat, also, running your tires at too low of pressure can cause excessive heat. So it might be relevant that your tires blued when you were running lower pressure than ideal, especially on a hot day when normally you increase the pressure a little bit from the norm.

Well do what ever works for you. Did the tires get slippery when you ran those pressures??? If not I would knock the info I gave you. Getting slippery could be alot of things including overheating the tires if the temps are high and also you are riding very hard. Not to many people I trust when I get tire pressues from them. Just giving you so info I was told right from Steve Brubakers mouth from Dunlop.
