Hard wearing tyre which won't kill me

Any suggestions for a hard wearing time which isn't going to kill me?

I have used toyo T1R's which gripped well but lasted five minutes

Hankook ventus evo V12's ive had mine on a year and theyve taken a battering at times and still look to have a fair amount of abuse left in them and they perform well wet and dry

For good grip and longevity go with Michelin. I tried Goodyear, Bridgestone, Uniroyal, Dunlop, but all wear out much quicker than Michelin.

Just don't go for that ECO crap, get some Primacy 3 and you'll be satisfied

uniroyal rainsport 2's I was recommended by the garage for hard wearing. £91 a corner, have them now on my civic and the other halfs mini, pretty good tyres from what I can tell so far.

Out of all tyres I had, those were the worst when it comes to wear, sorry

+1 Michelin are renowned for wearing well despite being high performance, you pay for it though

I use Michelin tyres on my road-going motorbike, put on a set of Pilot Road 2s before setting off on a jaunt around Europe. When I got back they still looked new... but the grip in the corners was always superb.

As said above, you do pay for it though.

I'm after the same thing. A few people seem to recommend the Syron Race 1's:
