I got 5,000 miles out of a set of Super Corsa SPs including 4-6 track days in there, there is no way you should be getting less mileage out of a touring tire.

Running it at max sidewall PSI encourages squaring because are effectively running the tire on a smaller part of its surface, running it to soft causes it to heat more and also encourages wear.

But yeah, more front brake and take it easy with slapping the throttle open.

This is the Dark Side, isn't it. I heard about this on the NGW list.
