thats what i thought wow,i thought they last about 13k miles,i've only been to track twice a total of 7 runs and the last 4 runs i burned the tires until they started to smoke and quit and everytime i take it out i'm always getting on the throttle but i never burn tire other then track.

I have ~10k on my 245/40/17 555Rs, and it looks like I have plenty left, I don't know how you have worn them own so fast. What psi have you been driving at?

When I get wheels, I want a tire that I can get several years out of (30-40k miles or so), but still give good traction. Am I dreaming?

Drag radials don't last that long. On my Nittos I have 10k miles, I think it has a good 5k left. By buddy has been using Nittos for a couple of years on his Z06 and he said they usually last 15k miles.

Seems as though you've been "accelerating" A LOT :shiftyeyes



I have nearly 10K on my R888's and the fronts are just passing the warning indicators and rears are not quite there. Been to approx. 10 AX days and spent a couple hours running around Infineon.

I typically run my fronts down well before my rears and such is the case here.

i do get on the car about everytime i take it out maybe thats why there low but still i thought they would last longer then this but i may have a few thousand left on them the indicators are only flush at center of tire

If indicators are ONLY flush at the center of the tires, lower the pressure a couple LBS :yes
