I've had both BT016s and Q2s(currently on bike now) Both tires work great for spirited riding on the street, and on the track the 16s were just fine for my (old) mid-intermediate pace. Haven't taken the Q2s on the track yet, but they seem to grip a little better, but wear slightly quicker, though not by much at all. I think I got 7-8k out of the 16 rear, and I'm expecting 1,000 less with the Dunlops. The Dunlops seem to have a stiffer casing, so the bike rides a little rougher. If I stick with one of these tires when it's time for new ones I'll be buying whichever I can find cheapest at the time since they both work well for my(and 99% of others here) riding.

commuting for work (when i can get it) along with agressive street insanity.
they lasted pretty good.
in the heat on some of the older slick streets they willl slip some though, but not unpredictably.
lotta track riders run q2's.
they're profiled pretty steep, love to turn.
when i first put them on i couldn't do a no hands stop for several weeks
and for around 2 bills for just the tires they're priced right

my bike came stock with the pirellis...

I didnt feel as comfortable in the corners as I do with the BTo16s. They wore fast, 3-4k miles for the rear. I went ahead and replaced the entire set because I didnt like them.

but thats just my 2cents

Yours were OOOLD and worn, plus they weren't the awesomely sticky ones people like, so it's not too fair a comparison. A LOT of people say the Pirellis stick awesome, but wear extremely fast. Everytime I looked they were a lot more expensive than other brands, so I've never bought a set. When I can get near(or at) the same grip for less money while lasting twice as long it's a no brainer for me.
