Yes, the 180 turns better into a curve but is a little bit more nervous when cruising in high speed. You also should consider the profile. For example the new Pirelli Super Corsa Pro is 55 series instead of the BT014R's 50 profile. This gives you an advantage that there is more surface on the ground when cornering agressive. Of course the overall profile in the streetracing/racing tyre is different. Again for example the Super Corsa Pro gets hot pretty quickly also on the street and it has much more rubber on the edges (rounder profile like the Racing Super Corsa) than the BT014 has. Hopefully this helps you!!
