I've had the best luck with BFG, however, I haven't bought any of their passenger tires.
When My OEM Conti's were toast at 22K miles, I went with General UHP tires: http://www.generaltire.ca/productdet...?id=exclaimuhp
They were the cheapest tire of the size I need for my GT at the time, about $200 each installed and balanced. Treadwear is 380, or about 45K miles. I've put on 30K miles and they're only half worn, and I've rotated them three times (due for a rotation this month, to make it four).
I've had the worst luck with GoodYear tires. They start out great, and when they have about 50% tread life left, they harden up like a rock and become very squirrely in anything but warm dry roads.
I don't drive my G6 more than 10K miles a year (if that), so tires with a long tread life aren't good for me, as they'll crack and rot before I wear them down. These General's have been on for 3.5 years and have held up fantastically. I do not recommend them for winter driving but they are a great low cost all around tire (in Canada at least) that can corner quickly without howling like the OEM Conti's did.
If I drove more I would have went with the Michelin Energy MXV4 all season. It comes standard on Volvo's, so comfortable it must be. http://www.michelin.ca/tire-selector...8/tire-details
I still prefer more performance over tread life. This tire is rated 440 for tread life, so you should get close to 60K miles out of it. All Michelin all seasons that I've owned in the past were quite decent in the snow.
