I have a Porsche 911 that I tracked on these tires and also drove aggressively in the mountains. They are beautiful on track and you can get 5-10 trackdays out of them if you don't get into the wheelspin too much out of the corners or slide the rear too much. They have a pretty narrow heat range that you have to mess around with to get it right. The rears last half as long as the fronts on a 911. They are terrible street tires - you cannot get enough heat into them to get them to stick properly even when driving aggressively, you really need the track environment. They are dangerous in the rain. They are incredibly noisy and harsh, but turn-in feel is absolutely amazing. I'd recommend these for the track and Dunlop Direzza Star Specs for the street.
