I Just got 2 new Performance All season Nexen's They work great, are not loud, great design and look. You may wanna look into them or I have the Falken's on the back which I think are great also.

You looking at all-seasonal or summer-only? I've heard the G-Force Sports all-seasonal are good and cost about $120.00 a tire or the Goodyear Eagle GT for $102.00 off TireRack.com.

i've got a set of nankang ns-1, just got them about a month back. i think they're $65 or so on discounttire.com, i looked around and found them as low as nearly $50 a piece (215/45/17 btw), but they were lesser known sites and didn't include shipping, so i submitted the match-price thingy on discount tire, they gave the me the tires for i think about $5 less than they're listed price, free shipping. they're extremely cheap, yes. they're a lesser known chinese brand, yes. though one reason for the low price is its an older model from a few years back. i found some good reviews for them, given the price range. strapped for cash, so i tried them. after a week or two, i've got them broken in nicely, handling isn't the same as the falkens i previously had, but that's a given. as for road noise, they're not bad at all. probably not the quietest, but far from the loudest. i think they've exceeded expectations so far.

+1 BFG g-Force Sports. They're not very all season in my view, but they work great in the wet. Very quiet for any tire, and you don't have to ever worry about their quality for even a second. I recommend going with a big name brand and a line that's been out for a while.
