Normal tire wear? (track use)

Hey guys, when I was at the track on Monday, I overheard several guys talking about their suspension settings and their tire wear... I didn't think to ask them to look at mine, so I figured I would post up here and ask the all knowing SV-universe

My tire pressures were around 30-32f/32-34r, and the tires showed little wear before the track day. I did 5 20 minute sessions, and 1 12 minute session, but only really pushed it in the last 3 (getting my knee down felt great).

Do my tires look normal? And is there any constructive criticism? I just can't get over how awesome the little rubber pieces look, haha.

*Note: The track had 9 right turns and only 2 lefts, hence the left side looking naked compared to the right.

Re: Normal tire wear? (track use)

Thanks for that link sdobbs, good reading.

To my untrained eye, it looks like my pressures were just a little bit too low.
