Sport Touring for mileage.
Check into sport touring tires. I have ridden 2k on my Continental Road Attack 2, and the words on the tread have just worn off a couple hundred miles ago. They ride great, and the handling is good. Keep in mind, I ride most to and from work and not much on the weekends.
If you do not feel comfort going for the Road Attack 2s, check into one of the lower mileage, Road Attack or Street Attack 2, for your riding style/aggression.
There are several other good brands out there, but Continental just happened to be the one I went with. Good luck.
