Different Shoes - Opinions Wanted (educated please)

In my process of evolvement for trackdays, I've gathered that I should go to slicks instead of my SP2s because I don't really ride these bikes on the street other than around the community to avoid storage issues in the winter. Seems Dunlop and Pirellis are really good? I don't know if it's OK to run them at 30-40 mph when it's 30-50 F outside? It's not ideal but I won't ruin them? I could tire warm them before taking them out. Anyhow, what's the experience going from the factory rubber to the slicks for trackdays? I could go to SCs as a slight compromise. Seems to be easier and cheaper to go the slick route (trackday vendors) but I won't go this route if running them on cold streets ruins them. I know it's not legal but I'm just doing a couple of very slow laps around the community. No, I don't think I want to do separate wheel/tires; too much money for such little use.

SC2s for me. They do get enough temperature to be useable for everyday driving, and they can take a HUGE beating and give tons of grip. And their profile match the DTC mapping without ANY fuss
