Low rolling resistance tires are probably best for mpgs. Or are you looking for a exact brand?

Exact brand would be great and what about size?

Hmmm, if you don't mind doing some research I think tirerack.com has good reviews/selection for you to narrow it down.

Both are great for mpg, both terrible for performance. Keep that in mind.

+1 for the Michelin Energy Saver A/S.
Get them in the same size you currently have.
They are better then the Goodyears that came stock. I saw improved grip, mpg and reduced road noise. Got no snow this year so can't coment on that but I don't see how they could be worse then the stock tires.

I have 30,000 miles on them and will be getting at least 30,000 more with even wear on all of them.

I'm getting about 4 mpg more now then this time last year, though all can't be from the tires alone, however they are probably the biggest contributing factor.
