I have been going through "what tire next" lately as well. Coopers make me nervous when it comes to their sidewall, same with pro comp and Patagonia's. As much as I want to try something new, I'm just going to buy another set of Nitto's. They just flat work, look sharp, and man are they tough. Just have to be willing to deal with the weight. Plus I only have to buy 4 and still have a matching spare.
