Falken tires have had a good name for years. They don't have a huge advertising budget so they aren't as well known as they could be.
A quick note about reviews. These are written by several types of people that only represent a portion of the market. They can be deceiving because a lot of people who love whatever it is they bought would never think to write a review, where an extremely unhappy customer is more likely to write a review. Reviews certainly have a place, but I only put so much stock in them unless there are lots of problems. End of sermon......carry on.
