Default Hankook Ventus R-s2

After searching and reading reviews I think I'm going to get the HANKOOK VENTUS R-S2 tires for my 05 wagon.

What are the chances of getting 25K+ miles out of these? I haven't found much information about long term wear. I do the occasional auto-x and I drive pretty conservatively on the street with the occasional 40 MPH, 90 degree turn or the 90 MPH sweeper when it's safe to do so. Probably 40% city 60% hwy.

The only other option I've found that I like that would seem to provide a little bit better wear would be the BFG G-Force Sports but would they be anywhere near as sticky as the R-S2?

Also, I will be using these on the stock 16x6.5 rims. With the BFGs I could squeze in a 215/55 without too much bulging. The only size wider than the 205/55 in the R-S2 is the 225/50. Are the sidewalls of the R-S2s stiff enough that I could run the 225s on a 6.5" wheel without too much turn-in loss?
