remounting tires (shared by two cars)

Hey guys, was thinking about getting some 205/50-R15 Falken Azenis for an autocross tire for an 86 GXL. The trick is that before they will be an autocross tire for the 7, they might spend some duty on an Acura Integra as an autocross tire (mounted on different wheels, of course)..

Anything special I should watch out for or take into consideration in such a case?

(the story behind it is that my Integra "failed" state inspection because "the shoulders of the tires were scuffed".. since I want the Azenis anyway, and I've got a second set of rims for the Integra, buy Azenis and mount them on the Integra spare rims and drive it down to get inspected... later unmount them from the integra spares and put them on RX-7 spare rims)

Unmounting them too damaging? Can't re-mount them once they've been unmounted? Once used on a FWD, open differential car, tires will become contaminated and forever understeer?

thanks and sorry for the 9 millionth tire question..

As long as you or whoever mounts and unmounts the tires uses a bunch of soapy water, the tires should be fine. But, since you're buying Falken Azenis ... they're so cheap, just buy two sets!

Oh yeah, tires don't understeer. Your setup/driving skills do.
