Well duh. Off course tire manufacturers are selling "slick" tires. If you ever watch the pit crew at motorcycle races, you will see them sanding the new tires before putting them on.

Seriously though, the thing you need to be careful of with new tires is grease and oil from the shop floor or from the technician's hand that mounted them.
