Question for Tyreman

Hi Tyreman or anyone else for that matter,
What is the main difference between the Bridgestone 010 & 012 (not the 12ss)? I have read the specs and apart from tred pattern they appear very similar but are they?
I'm not looking for a super sticky compound but one that will last well for my forth coming Italian trip.
Comments appreciated as always

Not a very technical answer but i've used both on an st4s.

010 last 4000 miles and gives good grip
012 (not the ss) lasted 2500 miles and i wouldn't say it performed noticeably better.

End result i've just fitted another pair of 010's Good enough for slow to average gits like me on the odd track day, good in the wet and certainly good enough for fast road riding IMHO.

020's will last a long time, used them on various despatch bikes. Bloody good tyre for something that last's so long, but definate emphasis on mileage rather than outright grip IMHO.

Don't last as long as Avon Speedmasters though!

Oops, sorry tyreman for sticking my nose in, hope u don't mind.
