Looks like they have done away with the (3LC-5Zone) Std 016 tread since the 016 Pro (2LC-3Zone) , and are continuing this trend with the S20.
I get better mileage out of the 003R/S than I did the 016. The center compound wears like iron. I wish more tires came with harder center compounds to maintain the profile under street use.
