Tire choice for me starts with the temperature range they will operate in. Blizzacks, for example wear very quickly above 40F. Summer tires on the other hand need warmer temps or they can be greasy when asked for too much traction. The next thing I look at is siping, then water channels. On wide for size tires we run hydroplaning can be a problem. Another problem is road crown which can affect the asymmetric tires adversely

For my money Michelin's give me the best balance of traction vs wear. No doubt there are other brands that provide a good balance for others. The run flat tires are a bit noisy but I like the ability to choose where you can stop for a tow.
