Tires for IS250 2012

This will be my first time replacing tires on this car. I have 17,600 miles on these tires. Turanza. My Lexus dealer tells me I need new tires. He says that is about all the miles I will get on any brand tire I buy. So he is saying if I go 17,000 miles per year I would have to replace all 4 tires @ about $1,000. Is there a tire I can put on this car that will last longer? Right now this is what I have. 225-40R18 & 255-40R18.

Take it to a Tire Shop. Talk to someone that knows about tires. There are tires out there that have 50k mile warranty. There is so many kinds of tires out there to explain them all. To get an idea of what tire you will need, will depend on the kind of driver you are and the weather you live in. For me, I live in WA and it rains a lot here and i go snowboarding. My tire choice is Continental DWS(Dry, Wet, Snow) and they should last 30-50k miles
