I have the Falken FK-453's. The 452's were replaced with them. I love them. Almost zero road noise. Drove through a terrible rain storm on the way to NC and they were great. They have great traction when warmed up. These are the best tires I have ever had.

I'm an advocate for Continental ExtremeContact DWS's. Have them on my STS and had them on my CTS too. Great traction in any conditions, quiet, and they provide a very comfortable ride.
Tires are like oil, everyone has their preference and you definitely get what you pay for.

I don't drive the Cooper that much in the summer so I can't really give a solid opinion. But they have been great from what I have driven on them.

I can't speak definitively on most brands, but my General G-Max have been great. Worn well, good traction, and a price I can definitely live with. They're made (IIRC) by the same company as Continentals.

Thanks to all for the reply was doing some re search on the brands named they all seem legit but, might go with the Falken-453 if they have te size I'm looking for.
I also looked into the ZIEX ZE 912 any advice ion those
