BT-016s are budget tires, BT-023s will be stickier and last longer.
All companies kept one of their older models to serve as their entry level, cheap, tires. Power 2CT, Diablo; those are tires from 15 years ago, the BT-016 is only slightly newer, 9 years ago, can't recall when the Sport Attack came out, but should be around the same time the BT-016.
For commuting you're wasting money on sport tyres, touring tires will be safer and last longer as that is their intended use.
