they're not horrible, but you need to set your alignment just so and keep a close eye on the pressures.
if you lap at a reasonable pace, they should hold up, as long as you dont overheat them.
if youre planning on setting records, this isnt the tyre for it.

i ended up getting a 2nd set of wheels with ad08r on them (for peanuts) cos otherwise i'd be replacing front tyres regularly

What I currently have on mine. Have done 3 HPDE weekends (3-day events) and about 5000 miles - all tires are right about 7/32 still. Rotate them appropriately and you will likely get a lot of mileage out of them. I typically ran 32psi cold at VIR (80-90 degrees, high humidity), plenty of grip for novice/intermediate level and communicate well before they give up.

Definitely update once you run them for awhile! I'm loving the Michelin's, definitely live up to the hype, but don't think they'll survive the California heat mixed with track abuse. Guess we'll see.
