Anybody tried the 208ZRs on his Mille yet?

I have the BT012s and I liked the stock 207RRs a lot better (other than the immediate cupping!)
The BTs have great grip but they're a stiff ride and a lot more work to hold a line than the 207RR were, now they're squared off and I'm shopping for other options.
A friend of mine replaced his 207ZR with the Metz ME1 on his SP1 and has the same complaint about
them changing lines too easily.
-I posted this a little earlier today but the post somehow vanished.....

That's really cheap!
But I'd rather get the tires from a US dealer.
Did your original 207s cup?

Funny I went from both Pirellie Evos (yuck) and 207R (eh) and the BT012ss are worlds better than either. But it could be riding style? I prefer the instant line changes when necessary.

I'm going to try the BT001s next.
