    I need to get new tires and want some that get high mileage since I ride mostly on the highway ... with very little canyon riding ...

    The hardest lightest tire with the most uniform tread.

    well what kinda bike? what size tire? as far as sport bike tires ive been using the pirelli strada's and im at almost 3k miles on the rear and it still looks new where as usually around 3-4k is time for me to replace cause i would be at the bottom of wear bars or bald. the tires are pretty good for grip and confidence but if you push them moderately when its cool out and the tires arent warm they feel a lil "slick" but warm they're great and wet even getting on the gas hard doesn't kick it out too easily in the rain

    Pilot Road II tires are the longest-lasting tires. They also have excellent grip.

    I have no experience with the normal PR, but I did 8k on my last bike with PRIIs before I sold the bike. I still had plenty of tread on there, and I know a guy with a Hayabusa who got 10k out of his set.
