There's been a lot of discussion here (US guys mostly) about the mileage you'll get from a 210.
Quote "Something else to consider however is tire wear. With a wider tire on the same size rim you will have a narrower contact patch, hence it will wear out sooner. The members who have gone to the 210 average significantly lower miles/tire. "
Many forum members have claimed that their 210s wore out substantially quicker than the 200. Some have claimed that there wasn't much difference.
I ran Michelin 200's the last couple of times, and now running a dual compound 210 Metzler, and its wearing a lot better for me, but possibly because I live in the hills with a lot of twisties, the outer side of the Michelins got ripped to shreds, and I only got about 3500/4000k's with them before the canvas started coming through.
