This mirrors my experience.Except for the really low priced tires, low mileage usually (not always) means the tires are softer and stickier.
In the CBR world, the mileage we get from the Dunlop Q3+ is usually more than, say, the stickier Dunlop Q4 or Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa.
So, it all depends on your application. If you are planning to carve canyons at well above the legal speed limit, then go for the stickier ones. Touring tires is a compromise and I'm sure this has been talked about (to death) in this thread.
There's a tip here if you really want to optimize the money you spend: some people in the CBR world put a stickier tire on the front and a longer lasting tire on the rear. E.g. a Dunlop Q4 (front) and Q3+ rear.
