I tend not to look at the brands, but more what the *tyre* can do.
I look for the tyres dimensions, tread pattern, and what its strengths & weaknesses are.
For me, I went for some 15" 225s which handle OK in the wet & the dirt (I live in the country), with a hard compound rubber so it lasted a while (but sacrificed a bit on overall grip). Not much roadnoise but that's just a bonus, because I didn't really care about roadnoise.
