Wow...that's an expensive tire....and the ratings on Tire Rack leave something to be desired. I'd avoid them.
The general recommendations on this forum for all-season tires are:
Michelin Primacy MXV4, Hankook Optimo H727, Nokian WRG2. Note that the WRG2 is more of a snow tire that can handle the other seasons, whereas the typical all-season tire is a three season tire that can handle a little snow. I'm guessing you get some good snow in NE Ohio. I personally run dedicated snow tires and love it. AWD helps you go.....snow tires help you turn and stop.
If you're looking for an all-terrain tire, people generally go for either the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S, or General Grabber AT2. Why? Those are pretty much the only ATs in our sizes ^_^
