I bought a rear 180/55 Pirelli Dagon Supercorse Take-off with one day on it. I've put two track days on it and I can't tell if I have one more day on it or not. There don't seem to be any wear strips on it like the ones on my Michelins. The grooves that reach out the farthest to the edges seem to have about 1/8" of tread depth left. The rubber consistancy and color seem uniform from the center to the edges.

Any help would be appreciated.

If in doubt. Get a new tire. That's probably not what you wanted to hear but IMO there really isn't a way to tell if a tire is really shot without visible defects other than to have it go out while you're on it which can't be a fun thing...

I use the Supercorsas for about 4 days without a problem. I tried to get a fifth and half way through the day I felt uncomfortable.
when in doubt, swap it out
BTW I use warmers to try to extend life
