Longevity of Q3 compared to Supercorsas?

Hey guys. People in my last post had me thinking about my tire purchase. I felt pretty sold on the Q3's but I've seen a lot of people say the supercorsas are pretty much king.

I don't mind spending a little bit more for some extra grip. I never ride my bike in the rain so that lack of tread doesn't bother me at all.

One thing I am concerned about is the tread life. I do about 30% side roads and 70% highway riding. A track day here and there. Almost all commuting though. I'm not a complete idiot on the public roads but I do like to push it a little when I feel it's safe.

Does anyone know how long I can expect them to last as compared to the Q3s?

With everything you just said I would have to recommend the Q3 if your not gonna push then your not gonna tell the difference between the two

S21 would probably last longer and right now are less expensive. I would go with the S21's to be honest.

I would definitely give the S21s a try as Corey suggested, you won't be disappointed.

I used the Super Corsa tires for my last two changes and my riding habits are very similar to yours. I love them and get around 4,000 + before I feel I need a change.

Edit: BTW, the grip is very good and although I don't take my bike out in bad weather I did bring it to NJ LBI shore area for a week vacation and got caught in terrible rain storms on the way home and was able to do the same speed on the GSP I normally ride in dry weather and the bike felt very planted.

I'm going to say get a set of tires for street and a different set for track. Please!!!!

I found that after putting miles on tires on the street, they start to perform poorly on the track. Especially when you're really pushing it.
