BFGoodrich (G-force Sport specifically) is my favorite of the brands listed.
However, I have yet to try Toyo.

I love my BFG G-force KDW's for my summer wheels. A little noisy, but they grip awesome and look great. I run Mich. X-ice tires on my winter wheels.

The moral of the story is, tires are the last thing between you and the road and it is money well spent to get the best tires you can afford.
good lord, he just said cheaper mid-range! and price is not everything!
Pirellis suck balls IMO, and they are way over priced.

Nitto Next gen tires are bad ass. Their specifically for performance street use and they tear through puddles in wet weather. SNOW is not advised! I've tested that out before not a good idea!

Tires I've had:

'99 Cougar - Nitto NT450s - Terrible in wet, dry, snow, noisey
'99 Cougar 3.0L - BFG KDW2 - Excellent wet and dry traction, not too loud
'07 MS6 - Bridgestone RE050A - Excellent dry grip, wet was sub-par, snow is scary, loud as hell and wear way too fast
'07 MS6 - Pirelli PZero Nero M&S - excellent in wet, dry, good in snow!
'99 CSVT - Zexius Xi326 - came on the car when I bought it, must say they are REALLY GOOD, they are siped and handle amazing in dry and even better in wet, they are pretty loud though but the roads out here don't help

I have always had my best experiences with BF Goodrich tires. That's why I put G-Force Super Sports on my 08.

The only other tire I would buy is Bridgestone if BFGs were not available.
