The problem is where I live sometimes I need to travel 40 miles on a straight shot JUST to get to a road with some twisties... Hopefully this wouldnt be an issue if I end up going with a ST tire

Some of the better tyres will have multiple compounds through the tyre profile. So harder compound on the crown and graduated to soft compound on the edges.  That way you dont get them squaring off as badly and you still get grip when leaned over.
