Town Fair Tire advertises Toyo tires on their radio and TV ads. Whether that says anything or not… beats me. I'd bet money Toyo and Yokohama are two of the cheapest brands there, so they're heavily advertised.

I forgot to add, The Goodyear RSa'* have treated me right in mileage on the GXP (48k miles on the rear and approaching the wear bars, but not good on snow and mediocre in rain. I have run Goodrich gForce'* which are excellent in rain.snow,cornering, ride, etc. But they are a soft compound, which is good for the mentioned, but I wore one set off the front in 18k miles. For those that need/want better value, they aren't the choice. I like them and will continue to use.

Sumitomo Touring LSH is what I have.

They were a brand new set when I bought the car, they've done good.
