I pulled the trigger on Nexen SUR4Gs for my 2014 V-Sport (stock are 275 out back instead of the 295 you guys have) and had to get 255 in back to get the killer closeout deal. I got a full track day out of the fronts and then one session my next day before the cords were showing. So, couple of questions.
- How many track days do you guys generally get on 200 treadwear tires? Two or more? I'm curious if the issue was cheap tires + wrong size in the rear or if it's just the nature of these vehicles and possibly driving style. Given that you guys have ~200hp on me I feel like you should be going through tires even quicker than I am, all else equal.
- I'm trying to find some tires that don't have that issue, are decent track tires and are hopefully on the correct side of cheap. I'm leaning toward using extreme performance summer tires instead with something like a 300TW rating. Does anyone have any thoughts? Priorities in order are
- Lasts at least 2-3 days, hopefully 4
- Any other suggestions on getting some more life out of tires?
