Opinions ......... mine is
If it's black, round and rated to do the job I buy it when I need them. I usually buy tires to put on a vehicle to go from point A to point B. The purpose is to get to point B.
I usually find maintence is where I spend the most effort on tires. Making sure the pressure is correct. Inspect for tire damage frequently. Rotate and balance them as needed. The tires I frequently have issues with have either old age or over 50% wear on them.
Installing them and washing them once a year doesn't get it for me.
