I am in need of some tires and advice.

I've ran the Bridgestone bt016 on my last 2 bikes and im used to them , and like them.

I'm thinking of trying the pilot power 2ct.

Has anyone run these tires before that they can compare. Grip, durability??

I know the Michelin is a little more $$ but is it worth it?

I never really jived with the feel of the 016's (the refreshed '016 Pros were a little better), but I really like the S20's on my R1.

I use my bike on the streets and twisties, I've never been on the track.

I need durability and have the confidence to lean while on the Canyon roads.

What's a good tire for that?

I listed them...those are going to provide you the most grip with decent life. If you want more life and less grip then take a step down to the S20 and the like. You need to decide if you like a stiffer tire or a softer tire. The Q3 would be the stiffer of the bunch but I couldn't tell you of the other two which is softer. Take the three I recommended and buy one, then when those are done buy a different brand and so on. Only way you're going to find out what you prefer and not what someone else does
