I always imagined that all but two small parts on the tires would be under continuous pressure, and thus could potentially deform. Tires are relatively cheap, though. I’ve started my saw many times in a detensioned state. Mostly, it would just make a terrible noise; once it broke a thin blade but kept it retained within the saw. When I buy my new saw, I’ll probably spring for one. But I’m with you, it’s like buying an air filtration unit: it hurt, it wasn’t any fun to play with, but it seems like the right thing to do.
