Metzeler M1s?

For the people that run M1s at trackdays, how many days do you get out of a set? I am on my 4th and was wondering if I should get a new set of tires for an up coming event.

I ran about 8 or 9 track days and a couple races on them. They are still in great shape and for sale for $100 for the set.

8 or 9? Hell, my rear M1 was chewed up after 3 days.

IMO, Diablo Corsas stick and wear better for just a little more dough.

We've got SVs, not RC51s, and I'm pretty slow. SVs don't chew through tires QUITE as fast as the bigger bikes. I actually may keep this set as spares.
