Autocross and tire wear

I'd like to start taking my car to autocross events, but I'm trying to figure out how much I need to budget for tire wear. If I have a standard set of max performance street tires (something like a Ventus V12 or the like), what should I expect?

I know it varies based on many factors, but I'm just looking for a vague ballpark... I have no experience whatsoever.

In case it matters, my tire sizes would probably be around 245 and 265. The car is a 135 with mods as listed in my sig.
