In market for new tires, what's best buy?

I have 2006 nissan altima with 215/55r-17 94h bridgstone turanza oem tires now. I got 32,000 miles so far with 1-2 32nds left. Any ideas on best dealer/ tire combo? Not hard on tires, just back and forth to work,city drive and occasional trips. Will be traveling more in 2 years. Thanks!

A lot of tire manufacturers have been coming out with more LRR tires lately.

Here are a quick few off of tirerack.com

Michelin Energy MXV4 S8
Pirelli P6 Four Seasons
Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max


Also, to lower rolling resistance further, you may consider a skinnier 205 tire. A small compromise in traction for a small decrease in rolling resistance.
