Trailwings go on Stroms for the same reason your Buick came with all season, average Michelins (or Generals or Goodyears...). They are serviceable, reasonably priced, and reasonably long wearing. Don't try them (or your Buick) on a track day or in Baja.
When I put new rubber on in the spring I'll stay away from a couple of slightly more off-road oriented tires as there seem to be plenty of reports of squirreliness from the front end, but aside from that I'll look at Trailwings again, maybe Battlewings, maybe Annakees. I don't do huge mileage and I find the reality for me is that any new tires, even the same OEMs, will feel vastly better than the old ones you rode in on.
