On my Road Stars, I use an Austone taxi tire, 175/(78)R16 which gets me about 25,000 per tire running at 30#. My front tire is a REAR Mich.II, 150/80-16 running at 40#. The one I have on the longest should be down to 2/32nds at about 37,000 miles. It's only got 29,000 on it now.
I do get cupping sometimes on the fronts, but I just pull the wheel at around 15,000 miles and turn it around so the tread is going the other way. This seems to fairly well even out the leading edge ridges.
All mileages and depths are with a depth gauge as eyeballing how much tread is left is pretty much innaccurate. So to keep track of the amound of tread all across the bottom, use a gauge and log it.
How will I know when I get there if I don't know where I'm going?
