Probably not what you're looking for,but I run a BT45 on the front and a CT on the rear of my 04.Love this set-up so far.Had the CT on all summer and the BT45 went on near the first of July.
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.

I like the bt-45 also. Usually get about 25K from it. Another tire that is used a lot is the Bridgestone 701. It is intended for trikes mostly. Other than that a lot use the Stone 709 which is used as oem for wings. I had dunlops on my '08 and didn't care all that much for them. There are many other brands such as Avon, Metzler, Michelian and others but I have never used them.
