Tire brand: price vs quality

Sitting here at discount tire waiting for them to put some new Coopers on my wife's Rav4.
When I called they kept recommending their house brand. To the point of getting irritated by me asking for a brand I've actually heard of. They assured me their HOUSE BRAND tire is made by whoever, but it seems like the quality would be less, just like the price. I'm sure they are on a bonus program, but it got me to thinking: is there an assumed level of quality at a certain price? My only focus is on a standard tire, not a specialty off road tire. I know like so many things in life you get what you pay for. Thoughts?

I have been paying $200+ per tire for years (Car, Truck...) Always have been happy at that price. I did a ton of research too, but its unlikely you will get a terrible tire at $200+.

When it comes to tires, don't cheap out.
