I run pirellie SC SP V2 on the front and Q3 on the rear for the back roads.

This is a bit of overkill for the steet for me.

I run pirellie SC2 with tire warmers on the track.

This is a bit of overkill for me on the track.

I have run back roads for almost 40 years and track for 12 and there is a reason like tires that are better then me!

Check out the new Corsa 2. I just put a set on my R6 and so far they’ve done really well.

I think I am on the same page as you are. I would appreciate the extra margin for error that a set of sticky tires could give me. I definitely don't want a slick, because I am going to be using the tires for back roads. I have heard people say that Rosso Corsa are the same as the SC except for the middle third is a tad harder for mileage. If I was going to go to a SC type tire, I am curious if I would like another brand better. Dunlop has a reputation for being slightly harder (at least from different forum folklore I have read) than the SC, but I really don't think I will even scratch the surface of either tire if I am honest about my ability. I guess I would still be looking at Q3+ vs Q4. I've also heard people rave about BattleAxe S20. I guess if I opt for a stickier tire, I won't really know if I could have gotten marginally better.

The Q4 leans more to the track side. SuperCorsas are good tires, but you have to really push them on the street to get their temp in their operating range. 

The Corsa2 uses the same compound as the SC on the outer section. It also uses three different compounds on the rear tire.

Just to clarify the Sc2' i use has groves and is street legal. I do sometimes finish using them up on the street but yes like yzf said - (in my words) you gota be wise about warming them up.

There are different types of super corsa from what I gather. The sp is more street/track and the sc are basically track only. I was looking at the sp. The manufacturers seem to purposely make worthless descriptions of their tires. I read their touring tires and they say to race professionally with them and then the slicks say if you use anything else you will die. All from the same manufacturer
