Just adding my $0.02 on the Michelin Commander II's.  I put 'em on May 2015 (140/90 on the rear) they currently have about 14,400 miles 5 years later with good tread (bike has 21,800 miles).  
I went with these knowing I'd be putting some commuting miles on but will most likely go to a 130/90 'cuz that fat rear tire is big and heavy.  
She's got a booty on her, for sure!   ( | )

Pic below shows tread after about 14.5K miles.  Ridiculous.

I just put on a Michelin Commander III. $180 at a local bike shop, after I brought them the wheel, they balanced it and put is on for free. New inner tube $16.25. Like it so far, my original stock tire was only good for 5,500 miles.
On my bicycle I only use Michelin tires, less flats and last much longer than any other tire I had.
Ps: Have about 100,000 miles on my bicycle. Now you now I am old!
