Bridgestone Motorcycle Wet tyres

MCN Biking Britain survey: Top 10 tyres for wet grip - Motorbike

Bridgestone Battlax BT 012 Super Sport

The Bridgestone Battlax BT 012 SS tyre has been launched by Bridgestone to complement the lighter and sportier motorbikes that are becoming increasingly common nowadays, as these bikes require a greater level of performance which previous tyre models have not been able to provide. Motorcycle News awarded the Battlax 012 the accolade of Best Accessory at their Product of the Year Awards in 2002. We would recommend purchasing this tyre if you are a rider who doesn’t want the hassle of changing your tyres when using your motorbike on both roads and tracks – these tyres also perform exceptionally well in both wet and dry conditions.

I get in the 3k-8k range on an F3

Mostly depends on how I'm riding. 3K is certainly not unreasonable for someone that spends their whacking the throttle or doing a lot of track days.
One of the negative parts of motorcycle reality is that what you save on gas (vs a car) is almost eaten up by what you spend on tires.
It's hard to get a set of sportbike tires for less than $250, with a $300-$350 figure being more likely.
Cycle Gear used to (and may still) give you 10% off tires and "chemicals" if you had one of their Visa cards and used it for purchases.
Here's one thing. Sportbike tires are fairly soft - that why they stick as well as they do
