My question is should I go with Dunlap, Michelen or goodyear? Which will give me the best mileage?

I am sure this question was asked before but I wasn't able to find it.

Thanks in advance for your help!
Since you are in Florida you might not want all season tires but rather dedicated summer tires which should perform better. If you don't want RFTs consider Michelin PSS. If you want RFTs I would consider Bridgestones. I have the Potenza RE050A RFTs and like them a lot. They are maximum performance summer only. This is a relatively old design so I would research the Tirerack and do some comparisons.
