Yep- it sounds wrong, but that's about the mileage you can expect. Don't push it too hard. Get that tire replaced as soon as you can.

I feel your pain. I have just three track days on this set and the front is feathering (cold tearing). Already searching for the funds for the next set in the next four weeks.

ya wanna save some money get a harder compound tire. Or if youre real savvy, buy some rims and soft tires for the weekends and hard ones for commuting.
