I use TR this way:

User must have above 20k on tires.

Tire itself must have 10m reported miles.

Tire must rate highly/highest in sub-category (with exceptions that one may find on vehicle-specific enthusiast boards).

I also compare tires based on tire temp ratings, etc.

LRR is nice, but longest life is nicest (70k plus).

Once I make my choice I get DISCOUNT TIRE to come within 10-12% or so when complete TR prices (warranty, shipping, balancing, mounting included) are compared.

I go out of my way to find the best DT shop around. There are always differences between stores as to managerial quality.
