Your speed, riding style, weight of your bike and whether your suspension is set up correctly will have a lot to do with tire wear.

My guess is, you'll be okay.

From posts that I have seen, Corsa's are good for 6 track days. A day or two more or less depending on track surfaces. Putnam has a rough surface, and tends to eat away at tires a bit more.

Running in B group, I would get about 7 days outta a Diablo Corsa rear, and the front still looked fine.

Switched to Dunlops and now depending on the track, I think I can still get 3-6 days outta a rear, but I'm not that hard on tires I don't think.

Putnam and Blackhawk tear up my tires pretty bad. Autobahn makes them nice and smooth. Road America just eats away at your tread so much on the right side, after 2 days I was down to the wear bars on my rear tires right side.

You'll be fine. If you can wear out a set in less than 2 days you'll be turning 12's or you'll need your suspension to get set up.

Are we there yet?

You'll have no problems. Just don't try to get 11 trackdays out of a rear.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!
