Default Favorite All-Season Tire?

What is your favorite all-season tire and what do you run on your Cruze?

Original equipment tires and sizes for the Cruze are:

215/55R17 Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max (ECO)
215/60R16 Firestone FR710 (LS, LT)
225/50R17 Continental ContiProContact (LT, LTZ)
225/45R18 Michelin Pilot HX MXM4 (LTZ)

I'm actually pleasantly surprised with the LTZ's OE Michelin Pilot HX MXM4. The first day I brought my car home we had a blizzard and the roads were snow covered and very slick. These tires held the road very well on the snow and felt confident doing it. I'm pretty sure I'm still on the car's original set of tires at 38k miles.

I've heard great things about Michelin. I'm considering switching over to a high performance summer tire on my 06 Monte since it gets stored winters and I have the Cruze now. A friend of mine, who works at Discount Tire, recommended Michelin for my Monte Carlo. I've had a few others recommend them as well.

Other all-season tires I've had good luck with, on my other cars, are the Goodyear Eagle RS-A; ran that tire on my 03 Monte (225/60R16) when I had that car, as well as the Pirelli P Zero Nero; what I currently run on my 06 Monte (235/50R18).

The Eagle RS-A and P Zero Nero are also available for the Cruze.
