race rubber wear patterns

Say i had pilot power race or BT 002's and i was doing track days, would the front wear "half" as fast as the rear..... in the same fashion they do on the street?

what im sayin is, will i go through twice as many rears as fronts?

and if the track makes a difference consider MSRH.

someone knows more than me, but I will say it depends on compound and how you use them. Lots of variables.

MSRH is pretty easy on tires. For track days, typically the front and rear wear about the same.

yep. when i change the rear, i typically end up changing the front as well.

also, my front compound is typically softer than my rear compound.

Given a typical situation, the tires wear about the same.
