I still consider DRs as bone stock. Powerful cars should come with good tires from the factory, but most don't due to tread life.

I wouldn't consider that normal. I'd pull the wheels and rotate the rotors by hand and see what's rubbing. Sounds like maybe the pads needs to be reset or something is off center somehow.

Too bad fastball, because Elite is exactly right and posts pertinent information to back it up. Why don't you go ask Al why he's suggesting an improper engine break in procedure?
