It depends, how are you riding the bike?
A lot of the above mentioned tires are more track focused and wear faster.
If you're more commuting and less dragging a knee than a set of BT023's will work very well. A good compromise tire is the BT016.

everyone needs a trackday tyre for the street. Everything else is for chumps! Esp if the OP has only been riding for few months...
