You really want a treat go to a race track sometime, you get to see lots of brand new shiny tires, some with a sticker on.
FYI I hvae a very close friend whom I consider an Amazing Mechanic who perpetuated this myth just like your friend.
New race tires have already been heat cycled and prepped for use. Street tires receive none of this prep work.
