Well some days there were small bits of rubber stuck onto the rear undertray and fender. It seemed to get chewed up. There was a lot of fresh bitumen laided down around here and it was very sharp/course to begin with. Maybe that did it?
I felt the back go out twice. Just a little slip under power when cornering on a damp road. Cold tire. I forget which battlax it was. The pirelli diablo I'm running now just for comparison has gone twice as far with only a little wear. No flat spot and has never slipped.
I'm no expert just my personal experience with one particular model of tire. I might have got a dud? Besides your looking at a different tire, it could be fine.
