    Right on the edge. If it pierced the inside of the tire then nobody will patch it.

    Happy for you bro mine lasted me 8k miles and that was with 2 track days and 5 auto X events. I have since stepped down to PSS and I feel the difference. I wont do Cup2's again until I have a separate set of wheels, or win the lotto.

    On my way this morning to an Auto Shop in my neighborhood. This is why I want to put together a spare tire kit.

    12.5k miles on only street SC2. Just above wear bars now. Fronts wear quicker than rears and were rotated at 8k. Price difference between SC2 & PSS i've found is about ~$400 per set. Real question for me is how much longer will the PSS last?

    Tread life has a lot to do with how you drive also. Seems like the majority of owners don't drive these cars hard at all.
