Pretty sure the more grip you get, the less time a tire will last. That said, I think there are some nice dual compound tires out there I just can't think of the name.

Pilot Power 2CT's seem to be a fav
I run BT-016 Bridgestones.

Much cheaper but still really good quality

What's wrong with replacing with another set of the stock tires? They seem great to me on the street...

1.Michelin Pilot Power 2CT
2.Metzeler Sportec M3
3.Bridgestone BT-016

Michelin Pilot Power here for regular commuting. I would buy 2CT if you're planning to do very little track days here and there and it's good on street as well.

What I like best on the Michelin is its lean angle, the traction, the compound, and the quality. I will suck you right in when you leaning on a turn. I rode Dunlop Qualifiers once and didn't like it much. As soon as I'm back on my Michelin, I get better handling and lean angle. By that, I mean the effort of leaning lower is less than that of other tires. Besides that, I noticed almost all luxury cars and SUVs use Michelin.

pick any

Pirelli DCIII's
Bridgestone BT002RS
Metzeler M3's
or Michelin 2ct's

if you "run out" of grip on any of these, you f*d up. don't blame the tire.
