Edit: Just realized I ordered the super sports not cup 2. Oops.

How many miles are you guys hoping to squeeze out of these bad boys? It's my first time with a true summer tire. Don't know how many miles they usually last with moderate use.

I would classify the sport cup 2 tires as track tires really, the super sports are more of a "summer" tire. I'm betting that they'll wear fairly quick but that's the trade off for how soft and sticky they are.

maybe 4000 miles I could be wrong. that's with zero track time and limited cornering

15k on the high end for conservative driving with no track driving.

Which is why I opted for the super sports

In Canada we have no choice, SC2s only. I had wanted to swap or sell mine for PSS but if I can squeeze 15000 out of them I guess that won't be too bad. I'm more concerned how they will handle in the rain and the odd morning or evening when the temps hit close to zero and I haven't swapped out for winters yet.

The PSS should last about 30k miles with regular rotation. I had them on the ST and they were warrantied for 30k miles.

really? get cold much in texas? in my opinion tires that carry a warning for use under 40* is because of the chance of ice, snow, or any other form of frozen hazard. this is based on my experience with summer only tires for the last 20 years. sure the grip is less than warm tires on 90 degree pavement but if you don't know that coming in, you should change to all seasons.

Not worried about winter. We get the winter tire package automatically. I was commenting on how they will handle in rain or the odd cold morning in the start/end of summer. Looks like they will be OK in the rain after seeing them.

I'm hoping to swap mine for the PSS with anyone south of me.

Our PSS's lasted 18 track seasons. They probably could have gone another 5 before giving up the ghost. We have switched to PSC - 180 trad wear. Can't wait to get the car out to the track on these!
