racing tires heat cycles?

I got some takeoffs BT002R. not the Ride Smart. How would i know when the multiple heat cycles have degraded my tires? just based on feel? or can you see physical changes on the tires? same tires I had on before, and they didnt feel too bad i rode them on the street down to the indicators.

They'll start sliding around on you. You'll know it when they're done, but I wouldn't recommend race tires for street duty. They'll never come to correct operating temps, thus giving poor traction.

Listen to this scholar and gentleman. And consider testing those out on the track!

Might just be too choppy on the throttle.
