I chose them solely based on reviews (anything better was 50% more $$ for 10% better performance --- or $100s more per tire for... bragging rights?), but then they went on sale at Walmart, and I got a full set, balanced, installed, extended warranty, road hazard, disposal and tax for under $370 out the door. I don't think I've gotten good tires that cheap in 20 years. The nickel-and-dime add-ons alone are usually around $100 for installing 4 tires
And they are good: much quieter and softer riding than the factory originals, longer treadlife rating, and better in snow. I just checked mine, because this week is their 1-year anniversary, and I don't really see any wear at all. They might actually last their full rated 70,000 miles/112,000km (the tread rating of RT43s varies according to size, speed/weight rating, etc. Some versions are only rated 60K miles)
Continental were recommended to me (for the van and also for a luxury sedan---i.e. both heavy cars) --also Cooper CS3s, but, I think they quit making CS3s a few years back. (They're still widely sold, and at a discount, but they've likely been sitting in a warehouse, and any one given retailler may not have the full array of sizes). After I found the RT43, I didn't look into the newer Cooper CS4 and CS5
