Context: I'm chewing up my new Pilot Powers at a ridiculous rate, it looks like I might not get much more than 4000k out of the rear. I like to accelerate quickish when the occasion arises, and pull lots of wheelies. Question: what's worse for tyre life - spinning up a cold rear tyre, or having it grip hard when it's warm? Ie. if I stop doing wheelies on short trips when the tyres aren't warm yet (thus, there's usually a bit of wheelspin before it grips and the front lifts), will it make a big difference - or is the real tyre wear coming more from when the tyres are nice and warm and they're gripping hard as I clutch it up? Or should I just go back to less sticky bowling ball tyres like the Stradas if mileage is important to me? I got 8,000k out of my last Strada rear and it's still got some left in it.
