Default How long to rubber tires last?

I've been running my current tires for 4 weekends now. 3 heats and a main each weekend plus some practice. I spent the whole day doing cookies on the track today and I'm wondering if the tires need replaced or if it's my setup. Today was frustrating.

Depending on how fast I want to feel, I'll do a new set of tires a week.

But the best way to do it in my opinion is to buy two sets of tires and rotate sets per round. that should be good for 3 weeks or so.

I think i was told once its 3/10 a second per lap slower each time you use the tires.
