Goodyear owns Dunlop now, and IMO has improved Dunlop's overall quality 10 fold...
That being said, I abhor Goodyears OE fitments...the eagle LS & eagle GA, however I've had great sucess in selling the Goodyear Comforttread & TripleTreads, the Forteras as well as Dunlop Signatures...
I've had great luck with Goodyear. I would shy away from the all-season tread though. I would lean towards a performance tread that also has a great snow and wet rating.
Don't skimp on tires.
From my experience the all-season treads are mediocore in "all-seasons". You can avoid "unpleasant surprises" with going with a performance tread with a good snow wet rating. The dealer should be able to help you. You will be amazed at the difference a good tire can make. I can feel it. I had a '92 Grand Am that came with Michelins, I was amazed how much more confident the Goodyear's were.

^^ He's talking about winters, vs. all seasons.
First time I used winter tires was the winter of 05-06. Before that, I always just muscled through.
I bought a set of Bridgestone REVO1s because the way they deal with snow around here turns the side streets into a fine imitation of glare ice about a week after the plows go through.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy these again, or the other Bridgestones in their price class (100 bucks +/-), whose nomenclature -50 and -60...) I can't recall at the moment.
The remarkable improvement in grip from BFG TA/H, which get pretty fair winter ratings, is like truly cosmic man.
