the reason its doing that is because before they leave the factory the coat them with some sort if soluion to protect it form something. break in the tire for the first 50 miles or so. dont go so fast into turns or burn out cuz the tire may make your rear skid.

Do i have to bleed my rear brake line? I just got my rear tire changed and i was watching the whole thing. What i did is pump my rear brakes before moving. But while i was riding i would just use my rear and see if it feels like before, but it doesn't. Maybe it might be the rear tire just no fully gripping. Just a dumb question.:D Any help be appreciated!!

He is right. Just get the new tire mildly "scuffed" before riding it full out to get the protectant coat off of it. Oh, and just don't use the rear brake, it's not good for anything but holding you at stoplights anyway. hahahaha:D
