If by ST you mean sport touring, then that's what I'm leaning toward. I'm more interested in durability than anything.
I can understand that you want your tires to last as long as possible, but many touring tires last because they are harder, which means less grip.
I rather get super sports tires which may not last as long but what if you drop the bike because the harder tire couldn't hold on to the road?
I prefer to spend a bit more and have a softer, safer tire that keeps me upright in slippery situations - saves me money in the long run!
