Default Something seems off

I'm starting to research all season tires since mine (Potenza G009 which I love but are discontinued) will be comming to the end of their lives in a few months (I'm gonna try to get to the summer or even next fall). I have narrowed my search down to 2 tires (General Altimax HP and Bridgestone Potenza 960 AS) The General has slightly better reviews, and the same tred life. However the Potenza is more than 10 bucks more a tire(not a huge difference but why pay 40 bucks more if you don't have to?). Is this 10 bucks just for the B-Stone name? Or am I missing something? Anyone have experience with either tire?

I have researched General and turns out they have been around a long time and that Continental owns them so they are not a sketchy company.

Thanks in advance,
Steve

*bump* anyone have any experience with either of these tires? I hate relying on tirerack's comsumer reviews because not many Subie owners post there.

Thanks in advance,
Steve
