Michelin Premier A/S if these are your only choices. The Goodrich is going to sacrifice far too much for the Volt, noise, harshness, and economy. Yes, the Goodrich is cheaper out of the gate, but you will lose those savings over the life of the tire as it is not LRR.
The Premier A/S is an excellent tire and is really hard to fault. I personally put the Continental True Contacts on my 2012 Volt right before I sold it. Michelin makes some of the best tires on the road when everything is considered. I could see you easily losing quite a few miles per charge on the Volt (probably 5-8 miles) with the BF Goodrich instead of using the Premiers. That is a whopping difference. The Goodrich's will be much louder and harsher as well. The Goodrich tire is really for being "sporty" and making aggressive maneuvers as the tread easily indicates.Thanks My main concern is less economy than harshness and road noise.
But the ones bigger than 8 inches really last a long timeI'm running Michelin Primacy MXV4's now great tire, smooth, good handling and quiet. I buy them 2 at a time from bestusedtires.com and have 2 mounted and balanced and installed when I get an oil change about every 2 years. I also keep a couple spares on hand and have an extra OEM polished wheel with a mounted tire. I rotate tires myself and relearn the tpms with the Let air out method. I understand this works with my 2011 but won't in the later years. Before selecting any tire know the tread width. Volt needs a narrow tread width, OEM Goodyears are slightly less than 7". Some 215/55/17 tires are over 8" wide, this really kills range and fuel mileage.
Unfortunately, my Costco doesn't have those...Hands down the Michelin Energy Saver AS, same as the standard factory tire on the 2016 and I believe 2017 Volts. On my 3rd set with our 2010 Prius, 195X65X15 size. Quiet, fuel effeicent (more so than any other tire in the U.S) and 65,000-70,000 tread life.
Costco also offers $70.00 off on Michelin and at times via on-line with executive members free mounting as well. When I had tires replaced on the Prius last year, Costco had that offer then.
I also have one volt with the premiere and another with different tires. Big range hit on the Michelin, I went pirelli p7 on mine because of that.I have 2 Volts; one with Michelin Premiere A/S (from Costco) and one with Goodyear Assurance.
The Goodyears are far more efficient; the car gets more EV range (by a lot) consistently. My wife is asking for her next set of tires to be the Goodyears.
However; I have commuted in both cars and the Premiere tires are far better handling, riding , wet weather, snowy days tires.
It all depends on what is most important TO YOU.
