tyres sounds faster anyway

I have researched over and over
I am aware of the differences between the michelin 2ct and the bridgestone 002

what I am looking for now is input from those here that have used either or better yet both on 06-07' ZX-10R

It is time to make the final decision and buy.
Please help
oh and street use 95% is the plan
wear is not a factor grip at lean is most important
the agressive slope of profile is an interesting debate

theres TONS of threads just in the last month about the tires. Go with the 002R/S for the road; as close to supersport rubber you can get, it by FAR pwns the 2cts. I've have the bt002 right now on the mv and i just ripped through the 2ct on my 10. The 2ct's turn in felt really weird and was never comfy when i tipped the bike over.. Bt002 is way more neutral and more my style!

Thanks for the info
I was about to order 2ct's untill a final chat with my local shop and other riders again. The slope has been the recent concern, my reason for asking for final input on here was to see if anyone has ran both on a 06'-07' to see if one works better with the bike than the other. But I know I am diggin' too deep. I'm more michelin fan but I guess the 002's are it.

If you are open, I only advocate the DCIII's. I have run the qualifiers, 003's the 2Ct's and regular diablos on both the street and the track. NOTHING is more inspiring and reasonable for the 95% street use than DCIII's.. and Sc1/Sc2 combo for the track...

Cheers!
