I have customers who burn them off in 500-550 miles depending on the track to others who can ride them for 1200 track miles.......personally I have never gotten more than 500 miles out of any current tire on the track and often only get 350-400

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

I'm going to add that my 3-4 track days on a rear Q3 equals 300-400 track miles.

I might see about 500 or maybe 600 when I do the math. When I control ride I'm usually working with beginner and intermediate groups so I'm not pushing all the time.

Gave my buddy my last set of Q3 take offs from my bike for his SV1000s street bike. The sides were toast as far as a track worthy tire, but he got another 2000 miles of street riding out of them. The center had plenty of tread when I was done with them.

is the q3 made directional or not? if its non directional try flipping the rear to save some $$$

i flipped my last pirelli rear and get about 4-500 TRACK miles outta them,

also crashed my 08 gsxr1000 on q2 like 7+ years ago @ the track, so i am very biased and will never run ahem (dunlop) hypersport street tires on the track ever again

edit: all tires are directional due to the grooves for water displacement but I am talking about the tires actual contruction, the pirelli rear are able to be flipped due to their carcass design, i am not sure about dunlops

I guess anyone who has ever crashed riding a certain brand of tire should never ride them again and tell tales of whoa to everyone to try and steer them away from them?

Every racer, from professional GP riders down to the lowly club racer

I guess it is all the tires fault

I got news for you...............99% of all crashes are always the riders fault- ALWAYS!

I'm guessing that three major factors are going to most affect lifetime of a tire:

1) Proper air pressure for the conditions - running too low or too high can lead to excessive wear
2) How hard you're using them
3) Track condition

I'm riding primarily in B class and spend most of my laps running at Thunderhill in Willows, CA. The track is really fast with two long straights, and quiet a few fast left hand turns, but the track condition is excellent - very few ripples, smooth asphalt, maybe one or two patches on the entire track. I can get 5-6 days which is about 800-1000 total miles, or pretty much one entire season considering how many days a year I can squeeze in, and its the left shoulder that shows the worst of the wear.

Exactly, it's hilarious when people blame the tires for crashing. Unless it's a cold tire and even then it's not the tires fault.

I quoted you exactly word for word............

I knew you said you had a biased opinion, and you obviously blame the tires since you are biased against them based on your crash and wont "ever run Dunlop" again

So tell us how exactly I twisted your words into something it is not?!?

And I did give my own post already numbnuts just a couple more posts up...You should try some reading comprehension skills, and some riding skills- maybe you wouldn't crash and burn both on and off the track!

woohoo we are having fun now

Well maybe I need to alter my numbers. If you are bottom 25% I must be bottom 1%. You are definitely faster than me according to the video you posted that I found myself in.

Whatever you say Norcal, I read and understood what you said. I was just adding to Riverzz comment. Norcal, you are like the rest of the unknowing, blaming tires for crashing. If you don't run Dunlop anymore because you crashed, that is downright ignorant to the real reason for the crash. Calm down and or STFU, I don't care which.
