I have been running D205's with mixed results. Mileage varies from 5-7,000 on a rear and 7-12000 on a front. Agressive riding really hurts the tire life. When I used the bike for commuting I frequently got around 7,000 miles on a rear. My last tire was into the wear markers everywhere at 5,000 miles and bald by 5500. The D205's do stick reasonable well and slide nicely.
The best bet may be the Metzler MEZ4 but the cost is high. D205's can be found for under $110 mail order rear and under $90 front. MEZ4's run about $20 more.
I have not run the Bridgestones but have heard mixed reviews. Mostly good except for people who ride very hard.
