New Tires need... a little help

So I am helping my bro out a little, he got a 2007 Lexus IS 350. it needs new tires and and I have looked some that seem good:
Michelin Pilot PS2's
Good year Eagle F1 GS-D3
and i know toyo and Dunlop are pretty good.
I don't know much about sport or performance tires, or any Lexus forums and thought maybe someone here could help out

thanks

I have to say that one of the main things I'm looking for is good tread life.

i can say this........as far as the tread on the assurance triple tred's we have now.....have had them a couple of years and put about 40/45k miles on them, and the tred is still great and shows very,very little wear. im pretty positive that the all seasons i posted would be almost the same.....maybe wear a little better than these actually. and they are great in the rain too.
