Back in the days when I used to track a VW GTI, I was using the Toyo RA1. I also used the tire for DD. The wear was pretty reasonable. I could do 15-18 track days plus about 12000km of street driving. If I am not mistaken, the Nitto NT01 uses the same or a very similar rubber compound than the Toyo RA1. So the wear should be reasonable on the NT01. Also the NT01 do not seem to be too sensitive to heat cycling, important to consider if you want to use them on the street.
