Best tires?

Hello i have a 2011 rav4 and i was wondering which tires can be the best for my ride... Which brand? Good year? Pirelli ? Michelin? Etc....

I dont want them for racing or anything like that, just some good tires for highway and offroad

Good highway tires are at odds with being good off-road tires, and vice versa. But since it's probably safer to have an off-road capable tire for your dual needs, I'd recommend this tire:

Yokohama*Parada Spec-X

2010 Rav4 AWD V6 - Wife's
2007 Civic LX - Daughter's
1996 BMW 328i - Son's
1995 Miata - Daily Driver
2011 Corvette - Unintentional garage queen
