Battlax 16 vs. 002

I have been running the BT-002 for track and spirited backroad riding, but they wear to fast in the center cuz I put about 300 miles on every weekend ( if theres no trackday)

So I have been looking at the new 16s. anybody using them for track?? Do they grip at trackout?? How about in the corner, does it feel as soft as the 02s?? One thing for sure is they'll last longer than the 02s, being there triple compound. I'm just wondering if they'll stick.






Opinions......



Thanks

my advice, buy another set of wheels, keep the 16's for everyday/smr's and 002/003's for track.

Yes...he and I run the same tires. I think we both get maybe 2 track days and 2 smr's out of them. Correct me if I am wrong Adam.
