i would consider myself a pretty aggressive rider when it comes to twisties...so having a tire that gets good mileage but sticks A LOT better then the 016s is a tire i would like to try...

I've never used BTs so I couldn't give an honest comparison to those. The front tire responds better to lower pressures on the Pures too. Read several threads on other forums where this seemed to be the general consensus.

I had bt016 for about 6-7k miles w a track day at gss. They did great for the mileage I got out of them. I now have the pilot pures 2ct and have about 3.5k on them. Almost time for a new rear. Front is at about 35-40% left. Day and night difference. I love these tires way better than the bt016... But they cost more and last half as long...
