The tire had 8 sprint races, 6 pratcice sessions, 4 trackdays. This past weekend the rear tire was finally done. It continued to have insane edge grip up until my second to last session. In the session before lunch it still had enough grip to lift the front while leaned over driving out.

The rear tire was slick on the sides and down to the wear bars when i started the day. By the time i finished the day off the side was a chewed up on the rear and getting close to the cords. To top it all off the front tire still looks great and is good for a few more trackdays.

Props to a good tire and this is my experiance with the tire so i figured i would share it. Ill get a few pics of the tires to compare a new and my old set.
Wait till you slap a new set on there, even though you can't feel the grip getting worse with use, you will notice a significant improvement in grip on your new set.

Im surprised you got that much use out of them, I managed to kill a set in two days at MSR, but I guess that track shreds tires worse then any track other then Oak Hill.

Cresson is what did the tires in. Most of the other tracks were MSRH, TWS (Texas World Speedway), Barber. I cannot wait to get that fresh set on there, theres nothing like new rubber!
