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 am also very happy with my Michelin Premier A/S tires. Much quieter, better handling and better in the snow than the OEM tires. I did lose about 5 miles per charge range. I have the V rated version. I have seen posts indicating that the H rated version loses no range compared to the stock tires.
I lost the same amount of range (5 miles) on these tires as well. Handling and noise are better. Disappointed and will not repurchase.
