I bought a set of Starfire solarus for the new Hyundai. The tires are quiet smooth and hold the road well. They also do well in the wet weather. I'm honestly very impressed with these tires so far. I can't speak to longevity but they are a decent budget option from every metric I have been able to test them in thus far. And they are made in USA.
from what I understand they are made by cooper which I'd assume would make them a decent tire.

Usually on Rollback @ The Walmart. Good tire for a great price.

Girlfriend likes hers--'17 Optima. Still prefer my General Exclaims, but if the price difference is enough I may give the S. Solarus a try. Certainly a very quiet tire.

I find their winter lateral grip to be unimpressive.

Had a AWD rental car with them in the fresh set of them in the back and the nearly worn stock tires up front. Making a turn, the rear end broke loose on me, and I wasn't even going fast in the packed snow.

That's pretty typical of cheap tires.
