I agree, I think my 30 evos are bad, but Ron Haslam has used them on track for his school, so they can be bad.

At a certain point, I still had plenty of tread on my Road 5's but the wet weather performance just wasn't the same after 2500 miles on the rear and close to 5500 on the front. I think the heat cycles from commuting 15 miles each way wears them out, maybe?

That heat cycles can effect tire performance. This is true but street tires can take a lot of heat cycles before performance drops off. Just don't know how many that is. I know slicks are very sensitive to the number of heat cycles. Tire warmers help reduce the number of heat cycles by keep the tires warm/hot while not on track during the day.
