I ran a brand new (~500 street breakin miles) set of 218's at VIR last May. They held up well until the second day. VIR is mostly right handersand that didn't help things very much. Towards the middle of the second day, I felt the right side starting to slide. I spun the rear up in the middle of a turn - it was controlled but no feedback prior. I took another lap and felt that the rear was not tracking in the turn at all. I tempted fate and lost later in the day as the rear was still sloppy in the turns.
I immediately pulled them off (less than 700 miles) and have not used them since. I've never been a dunlop fanboy anyway. After the two days, the right side of the tire was pretty much done. See how you feel on them. First sign of them getting sloppy, don't push it.
I'm a "B" level rider as well.
