Tyre Wear & Physics Dscussion

I'm sure I read somewhere that how you drive the car does have a minor effect on the tyre wear. For example, if you light up the rears through every turn they'd be shot earlier than a normal drive.

Yep, I do believe this to be the case in real life. I don't have a source readily available to me, but I think it has to do with where you run your slip angle can affect the temperature that it runs at. So for a given tire that can run more grip between 6-10 degrees of slip, you can get the same grip at 6-7 degrees as you can at 9-10 degrees, but the latter will wear your tires out much faster. BUT, I need to check my sources when I get a chance 

Ok! Found the source:

so temperatures will increase as you go past peak grip, while still getting the most out of the tire. Not too terribly surprising, now it's just a matter of finding out the relationship between tire wear and temperature: https://youtu.be/_viuA8MPKpc
