tirerack.com is a good place for info.
I'm very happy with the Yokohama Avid Envigor tires I bought recently.

I purchased the Yokohama Avid Touring-S tires about 1 year ago & very happy so far. They meet all the requirements I looked for with replacement tires on my '05 Corolla 5 Speed.
1. Low rolling resistance still provides 40 MPG average in the warmer months. (lowest 39 / highest 44)
2. Long tread life-Rated at 620 (A lot better than the stock Bridgestone tires-rated at only 440)
3. Very quiet
4. Great traction on wet roads.
5. $$Price$$ was excellent-$400.00 out the door at Mr. Tire.

Just replaced OE Bridgestone Turanza EL 400-02 with Hankook Ventus V4.
$395 w/tax OTD after rebate. 50K tread warranty & lifetime road hazard.
Smooth, quiet ride.
Good dry & wet traction.
Might not be perfect tire for heavy snow. I am thinking who wants to drive corolla for heavy snow?
Not so great corner handling.

Wow, this is an old message, but maybe this will help someone else. Get a 2nd opinion!
Sounds like this mechanic is trying to scam you. I have a 2007 Corolla, purchased in 06, and JUST THIS MONTH I am finally shopping for my first ever set of replacement tires (still driving factory). For 2 years, I commuted an hour each way to work, and my car has been from SC to NJ. I have been driving on the worst roads in the USA (NJ's) for a little over 7 mos now, so I feel I've certainly gotten my $ worth out of the factory tires (5 years).
