    I ran these last summer. general altimax rt43. 175 6515 I believe. Great tire, I think I paid $280 for all 4 last year which was great but my buddy told to ask you guys if maybe I spend a little bit more, I could get even better tires that could last an extra 10,000 miles or so (I drive all day long for work but I put winter tires on for half the year)

    if these generals are great I will just re-order them but if you guys have some other suggestions. I definitely like the quiet and obviously still want a good mpg

    That set on TireRack.com is now a whopping $444 for four. Well $443.96 before any fees...

    For $36 more I'd choose Continental TrueContact Tour. (Again TireRack pricing before fees)...

    REVVL V+ 5G ?

    Whatever you get, make sure it is a LRR rating tire (low rolling resistance) to give you maximum gas mileage. I have only used the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422 Plus, they lasted around 80K miles first time and now I am on the 2nd set. You can get them from Costco installed (4 tires) around $400 total when they are on sale.
