Also I drive a lot lately and want to get better wear out of rubber. I am really not in need of the performance the ps2 offers but I do want to keep with a sporty tire for some B road fun.
Please recommend some tires you think that can soften up the ride and get me closer to a 40,000 mile tire.

Thanks a million!
To get anywhere near 40K miles you'll need to give up some performance in regards to dry grip, cornering grip and steering response by going to an all-season tire. The good news is that such tires will often have a much softer ride as well as having longer wear. Top choices in that category would include the Michelin Sport A/S plus and Yokohama Avid Envigor.
