A lot of cheapo off-brand tires are made by Cooper. As is the case with myself.
Not sure what mine are, they were on the car when I got it. My dad said I may have to go with another off brand this time, as money is kinda tight.

"off-brands" aren't completely always necessary. I was looking at some tires on TireRack.com and for about the same money after shipping, I could get the likes of Kumho, Dunlop, Yokohama, among others.

Typically though I don't go by brand - I go by how good an individual tire is. Personally if shopping for some affordable all-season tires I'd be considering the Kumho Touring Plus 732 or Kumho Touring A/* 795. Both seem to be rated pretty well.

Around here, all season tires are a little extreme. The roads are pretty much the same all the time.

The Cooper Lifeliner SLE are all seasons as well.

They're all "three season" technically, I don't believe in true all seasons

But they're real quiet, that'* what I'm looking for. I also want moderate handling.
