I prefer Bridgestones.

I have Firestone Firehawks now, I will never buy them again. Others have reported problems with the Firestones too.

To what degree are they the same? For example Ford owns Jaguar (and others) and I wouldn't consider them the same.

i like both toyo and kumho. the toyo's came on my car when i bought it and have 30,000 on them and still look brand new and did the job. when i bought my rims i decided to get the kumho ecsta asx cause they had great reviews and was lookin for an all season tire. i have no complaints so far so i voted for the kumhos.

To my knowledge they are the same like Ford and Mercury. Same materials just a slighly different design and a different label. So much the same that if you type in "bridgestone tires" on google.com and click "I'm Feeling Lucky" and then type in "firestone tires" and click it, it goes to the same website....www.bridgestone-firestone.com

By the way, where is Cooper Tires at on that list? Come on, they're making some great UHP's now.
