What kind of tires do you have?

My 08 came with Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires, M & S, 205 55R 16, 89H rated.
They seem to grip well in dry or rainy weather (including moderate cornering).
The only complaint I have (and it may not be the fault of the tires as much as an absence of underneath sound-insulation) is that at highway speeds the tire/road noise is so bad that enjoying music on the CD isn't really possible.

What kind of tires did your xB come with?
What do you think of them?

If you got aftermarket tires...what kind and what do you think of their driving characteristics?

Mister eviljack,
Please also include the kind of tires that came with your car and what you thought of them. I have the feeling that there may be many different kinds of tires put on new xBs, but I'd like to get feedback on the matter.
So far mine seems to be the the only car with Goodyear Eagles instead of Bridgestone Turanza tires. I wonder if it's because I live at the end or the Oregon Trail? Or that my xB is a stick shift instead of the auto trans? Or just a random thing ("Hey, Itshi; I'm out of Turanzas. Grab me a set of something else.")
