You can do as you see fit. And you will get as many opinions as there  
are folks on the list.

  It has always been my opinion to break them in slowly for 50 - 100  
miles, varied speed etc. Then just drive the thing like you will next  
year and the year after that and so on. They will seat pretty good in  
the first miles, then just go.
