The weight you carry, the speeds you run, the abrasiveness of the road paving aggregate in your region, how hard you corner, how hard you accelerate, temperatures, are some of the factors of tire life.
Higher inflation pressure gives longer tread life, better gas mileage, reduced traction, harsher ride. Your choice.
Some good street-only tires are Michelin Pilot Road 4 (maybe the best in rain), Bridgestone T30 Evo, Avon Storm 3DX-M, Conti Road Attack 2 Evo, others.
