All-season tires for my V70XC?

Can you help me decide which are the best all-season tires for our V70XC Volvo with 90’000 miles (the car is in good condition and we do not plan to replace it soon)? We live in New England (snow and ice) but drive to work on major roads/highway. The suggestions are Michelin Primacy MXV4, Goodyear Assurance Triple Tred, Goodyear Assurance Comfort Tred and BF Goodrich Traction T/A. Any suggestions/experiences?

If you live where the secondary/rural roads may be snow covered, check the link above.

Thanks for the link Tester. The roads to our house are usually well plowed and we have not needed snow tires in the past.

Triple Treads are decent for an all-season on ice/snow. BF Goodrich are decent on snow but tend to be noisy.

Check out tirerack.com for some good ideas. I bought 2 sets of tires from them and have been pretty happy with mine, and my mom has loved hers as well.
