Default Tires for a 12 Premium hatchback

My OEM Yokos are about 1/2 (6-7/32nds) and this will be their last winter, so I'm wondering what others have planned for or have already purchased. I'm guessing the Yokos will end their life around 46-50k which isn't too bad for 320 treadwear tires. I've been looking at Sams and they have some BFG Touring T/A's in a 205/55/16 91V that match for $110/tire and on TireRack.com most of the Subie owners like them (some even rave) and they have a 60K wearout warranty which is pretty decent as far as V rated rubber goes. The tradeoff seems to be that they are not a LRR tire so they will not positively impact my gas mileage.

Anyone got a better fit?
