Well, I had only 1,500 in the ODO when I did track the car and the PS2 were not completely toasted (day temp 86F) but close. They got loose and greasy after 15 min but I kept running for 3x1h (I was mostly alone on the track so I just could not stop)
It hurt the PS2 for sure. I deemed them ok for street use, however I am not an expert.

when i did the track day at Homestead Speeday, there were 5 30 min sessions, and every 3 laps i had to do 2 cool down laps because the brakes and tires got too damn greasy. and i only had 1300 miles on my car after that track day my front tires were extremely chewed and chopped and the rears look fine, just almost at the wear bars already
