I guess if you don't mind the wear, there's no reason not to go for them. There's always that random person who comes in and says they got 15k miles on their r888's as well haha. If I could get 15k outta them I'd be all over them.
Lol! Apparently we think alike. The r compounds seem to be the route I am going to go but it is just a matter of what tire. Wear is not my deepest concern to be honest. 5-8k miles would be totally satisfactory. I just want the grip to be honest and that is why the r888 may be a good choice. I just don't know how they compare to the R6/A6?
