Buying new tyres - what you could recommend?

I need to replace the two front tyres on my wife's Honda Jazz SE, 2005, 1339cc, CVT. The original tyres are Bridgestone Potenza RE040, 185/55 R15 82V which appear to be discontinued. What would you recommend for replacements?

Michelin Cross Climate 185/55 R15 H XL. But you really need to fit them both ends. As well as all weather benefits, run at slightly lower than recommended cold temperatures they improve the ride quality considerably.
