Also, the (quickly becoming) new conundrum is that a lot of people are either trailering or changing tires @ events (even locally!) w/ the new Hi-Po streeties; since these tires are heat-cycling out faster & faster w/ each new iteration--back to square 1... lol
Yep, exactly. I change mine at home prior to driving to an event though...too old/lazy/sick-as-heck-of-99F-heat-index-tire-changing-heatstroke-days to fool with them at events anymore. Just a local club hack anyway.

It's only a matter of time until Hoosier enters this ballgame it would seem. They'll probably rework the A7 carcass a bit for toughness, etc, then lay down a dual compound treadface where the outer layer that is worn in the treadwear rating tests is hard, but shave them to 4/32s and *surprise* A7 compound is sitting there waiting.
