Firestone vs Sumitomo Tires?

Need opinions have my next tire purchase boiled down between Sumitomo and Firestone. Specifically, Firestone FS 560 (275 70R 22.5 load H) verses Sumitomo. I have read a lot of positive comments on both of these tires very little negative. I can purchase both tires (all 6) for almost exactly the same price out the door for $2750. What do you think?

I think both tires will work out ok.

Most people never wear out the tires, they just get old.

I'm kind of comparing apples to oranges, but I tried both on OTR trucks and I liked the Sumitomo better. Drove better and lasted longer.
