Sidewalls of this tires are not reinforced as much as other high performance street tires. Thats the reason they are a lot lighter than dunlop star specs for example. Iam not trying to scare you. Just my 2 cents
+1 to that!

Ps2's are not only VERY expensive but NOT worth replacing when you can get WAY better tires for less. They melt on the track when pushed and I found got slippery when overheated.

I would recommend a good set of street/track tires like the Star Specs mentionned or, AD08's, RE11's,NT05's etc...Plus they will LAST you much longer for dual track/street use.
