Default How many track days on R comps?

Hey all, i'm going to be switching to a set of R comps (toyo r888) for track days when my current tires wear out. Just curious as to how many track days most people get from an R comp tire before they cord. I know weather is a variable but i'm just looking for everyones experiences.
Thanks

track layout, level of driving and how hard you push it are other variables to account for.

i had my NT01s on my old car for 3 track days and they had plenty of life before i sold it. i think they might have had like 3-4 more in them.

There are too many variables that will affect the wear. Track, track conditions, weather, driving style, power levels, suspension, alignment, etc. That said, my 255/40-17 R888's lasted 5 weekends. They probably still had another weekend in them, but they fell off so much I switched to the NT-01's. The NT-01's don't have quite as much grip as the R888 when both are fresh, but the NT-01's stay more consistent through their life.
