I got the Yokohama YK580's. There was a really good rebate on them, and the gentleman at Discount Tire said they were some of the best tires they carried. Looking at the website, it looks like the only speed rating they have in 16's (what I have) is H... Which is a bit of a bummer. I shoulda asked beforehand, but oh well. So far, the ride is a crapload smoother and, oddly enough, my brakes haven't squealed once since I've put them on . Also, seems to handle better, but this probably has more to do with the fact that my tires should have been replced 10k miles ago, according to the tech who installed them. Oops!
