a popular combo is the Bridgestone BT016 front matched with a Bridgestone BT023 rear. Dual compound in front and rear with plenty of edge grip, a harder center compound for more mileage, and proven by many riders! Do a quick google search, you'll find a lot of people that run this combo and have many positive things to say.

something more important than a harder longer lasting tire though.... is making sure you religiously check your tire pressure! if you're pressures are too low, you tires will prematurely wear. also a good basic suspension setup could help aid in better tire wear as well.

While Tony's advice on the 016/023 combo is good, I've recommended it here on MH myself many times over the last couple of years, it won't work well for you
Back when I sponsored a few stunters they complained about the 023's grip when wheelying.
In your case I'd go with either a BT016 or a Q2 and live with the fact you're going to have shorter tire life due to your riding style.
If you interested I've got a Michilen Scorcher tire with less than a 100 miles you can try.
It's harder than the BT016/Q2 but softer than the 023. Shoot me a pm if you're interested.

With this type of riding, you might try to put a car tire on it.

My Favorite is the Dunlop Q2s! I just got a set put on my 08 GSXR 600 and from Pirelli these are AWESOME!
