I use Michelin or Continental exclusively on my sedans (also my wife's Lexus LS430). I prefer the Michelin MXV4 as the best compromise for handling, noise, and wear. I used Continental Pilots on my previous Lexus ES300. I use Sumitomo HRZ III (I think that's right) for my R129, but they are Z-rated, high performance, and last at least as well as anything else.
The Michelins are pricey, but so is the car they go on, and they were OEM on my W220.
