Trackday Tires - Tel me about heat cycles
Wanted to see what the consensus was on choice of tires, and the longevity of tires wrt heat cycles. I consider myself an intermediate-advanced rider and have finally considered dedicating my bike to full track use. So, heres a couple of questions for you guys:
Essentially, I'm after making the "right" choice between say a Pirelli Corsa III trackday tire, and a DOT race type tire, say a Pirelli Corsa Pro.
In trying to make a good choice, and I'm struggling with understanding what the difference in performance is between these two tires for one. The other thing is that I've heard DOT race tires are heat cycle limited, say 15-20 cycles? Is this in fact true, and what (if any) are the heat cycle limits for a trackday tire such as a Corsa III? I'm trying to undestand if these tires can be ridden to their treadwear limits (for track use), or should they be removed following the suggested heat cycle limits?
All thoughts are appreciated!
