I got the street/race -002s on my GSXR 750. I use tire warmers cause I already have them but, I forgot a couple times and as far as I could tell there wasn't much difference.
I have done 4 trackdays on them and they still look pretty good.
You won't be be wishing for more grip unless you are really fast. The -002 pros are gonna cost you more and last fewer laps. But if you are riding out near the edge of the evelope then...
Only you can say.

I'm surprised you only got 6 hours on new tires at the Houston track. I've run 6 or so hours at that track on take-off 090's before without any issue. We've run the 6 hour at Cresson on 090's (and won) without any issues.
I probably could have squeezed another hour or so out of them going at good pace, but I backed off a little as this was only a track day and I didn't want to risk crashing. I love the grip of 090s, and I just wanted to see how the 250 slicks will work on my bike.

Oskar, you'll love the slicks.
Tom, They nust be doing that rear wheel mod, because they are all running the 180 rear with success.

I believe most of them are.
If it's the stock rear wheel, you're probably better off staying with the 160.
