That little nail in the middle of the tread is nothing to worry about if it's patched/plugged properly.
And plenty of track guys have plugged/patched tires and used them on track.
There's NO street driving that will replicate anything you'd get on track.
Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
