Sport touring tires?

Hello all, I wish to tap into your vast knowledge! Here's the scoop. I live in Alaska, the roads are full of frost heaves, and partially covered in dirt. I burned through my original tires in 2500 miles, squaring the rear off badly. I really don't need a set of sport tires for the conditions I ride here. The road never really heats up, and conditions are not ideal for max lean angle. I know there are some new sport touring tires out there that supposedly have a harder center compound for longevity. Could you all toss me some opinions and advice on what you think would be an ideal tire? Thanks in advance!

Tires

I have mounted a set of BT023s and they work for me. Original BT016 was done at 4700. Currently indicate 16k with a few thousand left in the rear. Expect 13000 from it.

Original front finished at 13k.

Pretty easy on tires!

I've had the pilot road 2s and they are great. They wear evenly, last a lot longer than sportier tires (pilot powers), and they can hold a full lean. The main difference between the PR3 and the PR2 is the 3s are better in the rain and that's pretty much it. So of your not riding in the rain that often and want to save some money over the 3s go with the 2s.

Metzeler Roadtec Z8 Interact Sport; good adhesion dry and wet, good wear. For my riding very satisfied.
