I've been browsing for a 17" matched set as well. So far, I've narrowed it down...in order of current preference...to: Conti ExtremeContact DWS, Kumho Ecsta 4X, General G-Max AS-03, Bridgestone RE970AS, and Yokohama AVID ENVigor.
FWIW for me, a tire that can be crowned as "best" must do all things reasonably well (given the compromised nature of "All-Season" categorization), AND have exceptional treadlife. It's also worth noting that I have zero expectations, of All-Season's, for winter-weather performance. For that I use winter tires (on 16" rims). The only reason I prefer All-Seasons over Summer tires is that I'm in it for the treadlife...and All-Seasons tend to last longer.
