this is the first time i use 2CT's. i love them and the center of the 2CT last longer than the regular.
the side of the tires are really good for corners, i use this tires on the streets and love them 100%. i have not lost the rear yet and i been crazy on it.!
last tires i had was the M3 and the rear came off loose up at north (3090/149).
anyways........... i love the 2ct my self, i have not try the pilot powers yet but for what i understand the 2CT last longer and are good for freeway riding and corners!!

on the stretch bike, it wouldn't matter. you'll be going straight anways. Go with the 2CT, it'll last a bit longer, but i'm with racer x on the pilot road 2.

Wont be saving any rubber in the center...the compound in the center of the 2ct is the same of the pilot power....the only thing with the 2ct is the softer compound on the edges

road 2 is not on his list, but it should be. If it's just street, thats his best bet. And from the looks of the bike, (stretched and lowered?) he ain't railin curves. or so i assume. I replaced my road 2 rear only because i bought a set of Q2 at a good price. It had about 5k miles or so, but could easily have lasted longer. At least another 2k. Decent grip, but the Q2 gets stickier

I drag raced on a 2ct. That says something. That tire hooked pretty good. It only lasted me about 2 months though. It wasnt the tires fault though. I would buy the 2 CT again. Either will be fine.. Dont waste too much time deciding. Just get one or the other. Its just a tire. It wont be the lsat.

thanks everyone. i prolly get down lower than i should for a streched bike just to keep up with my buddies on the turns, but believe it or not i don't leave much of a chicken strip on it. but on the other hand, i'm not draggin knee in turns by any means, and most of my riding is straight up. the reason i asked about only these two is because i found what i believe is a real good price on them and i like these the most.

pilot powers for $129 shipped
2ct's for $167 shipped

both on ebay.
