    MPSS has a 30k mile warranty. With regular driving thats how long they expect them to last.

    I got about 36k out of my Eagle F1 tires.

    If you are a member of one of the warehouse clubs they will usually patch it for free as well.

The dent in the wheel likely came after the blowout. Poor coordination at the track since I never got a black flag and it would have saved me from a blow out

    Sucks to hear, but I don't think its fair to blame corner workers for not seeing your tire just before a blow out. They are mainly looking for smoke and fluids on track with black flags, asking anyone to watch a spinning tire as it flies by on track from a corner station and predict a blowout seems a bit much to expect. Unless it shed the entire tread as 1 big strip like a re-treaded truck tire will do on the highway, even shredding for a lap they might not be physically able to see small chunks fly off your tire.

    Glad to hear you're not injured and the only casualty is the track wheel, but give the corner workers some slack!

    I always make sure the corner workers I hire know exactly what I expect for my money before hand.

    I have 4 hours of track time (2 days worth) at 8-9/10ths speed and ~4000 street miles. They look fine, I'll probably get another 4000 miles out of them.

    As to the Cup 2's, honestly the OP is the only one I've ever heard say 3k miles, I don't expect to get much more than 10k street miles on them, but like any track focused tire, it is highly subject to use or abuse.

    You can easily shred a perfectly good tire in single session by running too low a pressure and over heating sidewall on the track. Conversely a tire with proper pressures attentively maintained and driven without a ton of gratuitous wheelspin might last a while on track. It's all relative.

    I got about 20k out of the Eagle F1s on the ST, and I wish they had died sooner. I absolutely hated those tires. Switched to MPSS and was extremely happy with them. I was so happy to hear the RS came with the MPSS stock.
