Depends on your budget. The pirelli p4 is a nice tire, excellent all weather traction, smooth and quiet, 99,000 mile warranty, and about $115 per tire pretty reasonably priced. Falken makes some cheaper ones that are pretty nice, about $75 each.

Our Caddy has Michelin Symmetrys. 225/60/16.

I seem to recall a set of four, all costs included, lifetime rotation and balance, at Sam's club for 400-500 bucks. Super quiet, wear extemely well (came OEM and I replaced with the same tire at about 50K). They are not sports car quality handling, but great in the snow, ultra quiet, wear well - all the criteria needed for that car.

Discount Tire Co.

I'm not a fan of the symmetry, traction is so-so and they cost more than the pirelli. Other than that they are a good tire though.

They were the most bang for your buck when I got them, not the best tires I've ever had, but for the price they couldn't be beaten. The best tires I ever had were bridgestone potenza RE910's, they stopped making that model years ago, but they just would not let go.

They don't last on the 8th gens, but they do ok on the 7th gens. But even still, with a 99k warranty they are cheap to replace when they wear out.

Yeah for 16's you should be able to find decent tires for around $100 all day. I recommend finding a local tire shop (small business style, not a pep boys) and seeing what the have to offer, if they have any special deals, etc.

Just be careful of buying tires online... On top of the shipping costs (which actually arent that terrible from tirerack), most shops will charge you a pretty penny extra to mount and balance tires that are brought in from an external source. best bet is to call a shop ahead of time and ask what the mounting prices are each way. Ive seen firsthand shops that charge $40 if the tires are bought in house vs. $100 if bought elsewhere. Thats an extra $15 per tire.
