You can't expect long life out of soft compound tires and most of its life really depends on how aggressive you drive. I drive pretty aggressively but luckily only drive my car 2-3 days a week (i live above the Yonge Subway line) so i should get lots of use out of these tires. But it's pretty easy to smoke soft compound tires.
As far as the drop is concerned, get a good set of springs and shocks and you shouldn't be too worried about carrying people in the car. I can easily take 4 in my car and my tires won't rub (mind you my fender wells are rolled tho).
