they have a bt-16 pro out now. I just bought a set to try.
I still miss the bt-002rs. god that tire was the shit. I liked it more than the 003rs

you're grouping it with basically hard race tires. the gpa from dunlop is more like the power pure.
and the 003rs crosses into race use category.

They put 003RS and Q2 in same group. Q2 in Street Willow best 003RS's lap time. Power Pure is a street tire and is marketed as Q2's direct competition.

Personally, I don't see how Power Pure is at the level of GPA, because people race with GPA but never with Power Pure. Or do you mean Power One?
