Absolutely. If you want to have fun on pavement/tarmac then you definitely finish the rear in less than 4000km's. Some very good boyz get it to survive over 6000km's although I cant imagine how this works, Maybe it also has a lot to do with the grip. In the Italian Alps with its (mainly) super grippy roads you burn the rear tire in no time. As you say after a week its worn out.

Alternatively you could use a K60 rear tire but it has less grip and is somewhat behind the TKC offroads. I admit I never mix tires.
