    i couldnt tell you how many miles they last but going to the track shouldnt hurt them to much, because you wont be doing a burn out

    The track is what kills them.
    You have to warm them each pass. 5 seconds or so each time smoking them.

    They are a VERY soft tire.

    If you baby them they might make 5K, but racing them...not going to get much out of them mileage wise.
    You will hook though.

    1.8 shouldn't be a problem.
