I had a performance auto shop and sold quite a few tires. In my experience the ecsta has a great price, but wore down extremely quick and were junk if you had an alignment issue.

I put Eagle II's (285/50R20) on a Suburban and they have held up well. They balanced well and the customer was happy. They seemed to be a good all around tire.

I'm a fan of the Fuzion line as they are a Bridgestone/Firestone tire. They wear great as the rubber compound seems a bit harder. I like the tread pattern and they are priced great as well.

Good luck on your search, this is my two cents
