Tire Replacement options?

So I popped a tire on Friday on my ‘15 Volt, and ended up replacing all 4 tires (36k miles 5/32) and was opting for these Road Hugger GT Eco as the salesman recommended me personally as a Electric car owner.

Unfortunately they didn’t have enough in stock and threw on some Goodyear Assurance Touring tires ($25 more per tire) I guess considered an upgrade?

I have yet to try out the full range to see how much I’ve lost, but figured I’d ask..what are other owners throwing on to maintain range. If I notice a big difference I may just opt to come back and get the original set I purchased.

I was forced into a quick decision due to a nail that couldn't be repaired and finding the tires were at 4/32 anyway, so I ended up with (it's a mouthful) Continental Control Contact A/S Touring Plus tires. They seem to be a Discount Tire exclusive product. I've only had them 2 days, so no report yet, other than the ride is nice and quieter than OEM. I'll report back after the break in. People seem generally happy with Continental tires, so hopefully I made an OK choice. I have Blizzaks for the winter, so I wasn't concerned about all season performance, but I did want something better than the OEM.
