What tires are best?

I'm looking to get some 245/70/r17 tires. There is a 1$ difference between cooper AT and falkin AT. I think warranty slightly better on falkin but there is a visa gift card for cooper and I'm paying for extra warranty anyways... Not sure if falkin is better than cooper in general though.

Tirerack.com has the best info on tires, they have ratings from customers on just about every tire, so you can look up each tire and compare the specs and customer ratings, experience with the tire to determine which one looks like the better choice.

Michelin

I installed the Michelin LTX and couldn't be happier. The tread is aggressive and built for handling rough roads. Winter too. The side wall is strong for.hauling a trailer so no more side wall squash. I had the Michelin latitude previously and it had great ride qualities but not so good in winter or off road and lots of squash but they lasted 110,000km which was unbelievable.
