I think I've ended up deciding on the Aspen Touring. I was mainly iffy because I couldn't find any reviews, but turns out the Doral SDL 65A is the same thing, and it has pretty good reviews. As for the Falken Sinceras, I've read bad things about them. The Epic Tours are Primewells, which is one of the reasons I really didn't like them.
Bad reviews? 8.4 out of 10 average rating....(with other sites giving them 4 out of 5 stars). There's always going to be a few that are nitpicky about the little things, don't let that fool ya Its impossible to please some people. And even out of all the reviews I've read on these tires, the few that are bad are complaining about tread wear. Fact is, tires wear and need replaced. Some faster than others due to how one drives their vehicle Dollars to donuts, the ones complaining about the fast wear beat the tar out of their vehicles and are the type of people that check their oil once every 3 years and change it once every 10 years
Personally I'd rather have a well known tire from a manufacturer I've heard of...Not familiar with Doral/Aspen Touring, but I suspect its yet another low budget chinese made tire. Primewells get a bad rap, but for the price they are quite a decent tire in my experience (plenty of them I've seen have lasted much longer than their treadwear warranty of 40k miles). They are very similar to Firestone FR380s, which cost about double, and last just as long. Granted, I'm talking more about the primewell 830/850 line, so I can't really speak to the epic tours.
YMMV of course, best of luck
