Buy what you want, but the best tires you can buy are always Goodyear. If you don't believe it, take notice of how often you see them on the race track. My 2-cents.
I used to work for Goodyear, and IMHO some of their passenger tires are sub par. The "Eagle F1 Supercar tire" is very good, but very expensive.
Their motorsports tires and slicks are good but not DOT.
Believe it or not, a lot of their snow tires are made in Chile SA. Always found that odd?
For the street, I believe the Michelins are the best. If you look at the construction, they are well made.
The limiting factor on passenger and Light Truck tires is UV and road chemicals. The tires seem to crack and show failures before you wear them out.
And, I've said this before, plugging a puncture with a push in plug is not the proper way to fix a tire. In order to maintain the speed rating, you must remove the tire, inspect, and use a pull through plug with patch. Often you will discover hidden damage that will lead to tire failure.
There are other brands that work well, and are competitively priced, Uniroyal, Firestone, Nitto etc.
Edit: Goodyear makes tires in 21 countries. Most of the ones made in Canada or the USA have factory codes with MB, MC, MD, and so on. Although the materials and chemicals are sourced from the US and Canada, tires are made in places like; Poland, Turkey, Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, China, South Africa etc.
Goodyear is #4 in world production, behind Bridgestone/Firestone, Michelin and Continental..
The Goodyears made in Ohio, are of course excellent, right Jimbob?
