What’s it mean when the edges of you tires turn rainbow colored?

So it's not like something is wrong like tire pressures or whatever?

Great. Thanks for that. I also learned from this that I need to add a click or two of rear rebound.

Tire warmers aren't just for pros or posers, they actually help reduce the number of heat cycles by maintaining temperature before and after track sessions (for example the whole morning might be 1 cycle with warmers or 4 without).
Too many heat cycles makes the tire hard and lose grip and feel before the tread is worn thin. So warmers usually pay for themselves over time with tire cost savings. (Not to mention avoiding some crashes, etc)
