We actually have the Cosco seats, one baby and one toddler seat, and they have been good, are relatively cheap, and have good safety ratings.
Lower rings, middle tethers? I'm not quite sure what you are referencing. Lower latch bars? Top tether? Where is the seat installed? Most car seat and vehicle manufacturers do not allow latch borrowing to install in the center.
There are no such things as safety ratings I'm afraid. All car seats in the us meet the exact same standard. It's a pass or fail test. There are no rankings or ratings.
