Peculiar tire wear: Hankook Evo V12

Both front tires are wearing on the same side. It looks like the tread is coming off. My camber in the front is 1.5 degs right and left.

Could it be the batch I bought is defective or are they supposed to wear like this? I only have about 1500 miles on the tires.

I think those tires arent designed for the driving style of yours. They seem to be overheated. This could be the problem , however I never seem anything like this, if you bought them at a local shop try to return them , if you bought them online then forget it. If it was me, Id still run them as I dont think this is dangerous.

They may not be. I've tracked them for 6 days. I know people who have used these street tires for the track as a budget Direzza w/o having the same issue.

I've had mine for a few thousand miles and they look nothing like it.

That looks about normal for 6 track days. My direzza's looked like that after 2 weekends.

My RS3s look pretty good after 2 track weekends.

You'll see the tread blocks will kind of shift after some hard track sessions. Especially if your tires got greasy. Normal. I stressed over the same thing after my first track weekend.

I have noticed that street tires will ride much louder and a little rougher after each successive heat cycle.

Assumption, all the wear is on the outside edge, tread and graining patterns seem to indicate that.

Too much tread depth, too much slip angle at the front which leads to too much heat and the tire starts to chunk up. Check your toe setting also. Suggestions - a little less bravado on corner entry and maybe a couple more pounds of air in the tires. Don't see the outside edge of the tire so can't tell how much roll over you are getting. Check the tire pressures when you come off the track. Without some guidance on this tire I can say the RS3 ( another Hankook tire ) likes 40 psi hot for best bite versus wear pattern.

Yes, my RS3s are holding up pretty good but they are not so great on the street.
