Yeah, what Mr. Goat said. Egg, you are an unrepentant Cali lead-foot, you should stick to sticky tires, don't cheap out, lest you "go agricultural" or worse.

New tires do require some break in. 90+ on the first day is not the best way to break them in.

Right now you have a softer compound tire on the front, than on the back, that's not the most stable situation.

The difference in compound could be part of the problem. The UHP is still a very good ultra high performance tire so I'm not complaining about its performance characteristics.
