Re-tiring question

I know some TBird riders have used the 200/55 Avon tire for the rear. Has anyone used the Avon Ultra 2 Storm 200/50 Z rated rear tire, and if so, what kind of mileage did you get out of your tire? The Metzelers have good grip on dry pavement and reasonably good grip in the rain, but the mileage off that back tire is pretty low. Specifically, are there any problems having the Metzeler on the front and the Avon 200/50 Z on the back with respect to handling and braking? I suspect that with increased demand, Avon will offer the front tire in the same tire line. In the interim, it is about time to re-tire. Comments welcomed.
