I know this has been done before, but after suggestions with the following criteria:

- currently running BT010s - seem to be OK, but not used anything else
- will be reasonably paced road riding only, so not looking for super sticky but a bit more durability
- have spare wheels with slicks for track days, but I guess the road tyres would be used if it was wet.

Hello mate,

The obvious step from the 010 is the 012 or for a little more stickiness then the 012ss's as are run by many here should see you proud ......

If you like the way the Bridgestones work then the 012 (either version) will be similar but better ....

Er sorry Dibs, but i think you will find that 012 and 012ss are less durable than 010.

020 is more durable than 010, but not as grippy. I think 010 is good compromise between grip and wear.
