A good place to start is tirerack.com. Plug in your car and it will show you tires that meet the specs (speed and load rating) then sort by your preferences, including price. Then you can look at the ratings for the various tires, including reviews by people who own them.
Regardless where you buy the tires, that's a valuable resource and it's free for you to use.
I don't know what you consider an arm and a leg, but I paid a decent bit (about $825 including installation) for a set of Goodyear Assurance ComforTred tires, and I have been exceedingly happy with them. They had good treadwear ratings, but were very highly rated for noise, which was my primary concern. Other popular tires for the 210 are the Michelin Primacy (those are an arm and a leg) and Continentals.
