If you want higher mileage than true Supersport tires with a little sportiness, you can try the Pirelli Angel ST and similar. It will not be anything near as sticky as a Q3, PP, Rosso's,... etc. It will however last longer in the commuting role in which it was designed to do.

But as in the case of everything and opinions- to each their own,

and your mileage may vary..

Attitudes are contagious. Mine might kill you.

Used bridgestone new T30 EVO, could not find anything that they would not handle...
lots of miles and lots of street grip.

better that PR4, but PR4 is better on wet.

I hate Q3 but could be that its because ex owner didnt lean enough, and they are not worn out on the edges. so it makes it harder to lean.. because i bought bike with like 60% tire..
Ive also heard PP 3's last much longer.. since im broke student and i ride a lot, but they seem to be more expensive than q3 so i'm wondering does it make it up
Im in the same boat you are, but im no longer on a 10, but a 6. My 6 came with conti motions on them and I liked the amount of feedback I got form them so i decided to try their longer mileage tire, the Road Attack 2 Evo. Theyre coming out with the Road Attack 3 soon if they haven't already, but my experience with them in the rain is fantastic. As long as my throttle control isn't shitty they grip really well. I paid 303 for the set and the PR4 is about 30-40 more for the set. Definitely get an all season tire for the commute and youll be be pleased

Op you should have initially stated you ride mullholland. You would need the stickiest tires. You can tell from all the crashes on youtube. They were all due to tires. And none of the crashed were due to decreasing radius, target fixation, crown of the road and showing off for the camera. :p
