Toyo vs BF Goodrich - please help someone knowleadgable

Which is a better tire?

Toyo Proxes
OR
BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW 2

I have a X5 4.4 and I will be getting 22" wheels and need good tires to drive in Los Angeles. I don't drive in snow or offroad. I do all day freeway and traffic driving and a good amount of braking.

I need to make a decision ASAP but I have heard good things from both.
My body shop guy says Toyo is better but I've only read good things about BF online.

Please help!

Thank you.

I would lean towards the Toyo tire personally, however the g-Force line of tires is supposed to be real impressive...

I have the 20" Toyos and can't say enough good things about them. Very smooth & quiet.

I second that. Thanks pseto for all your help. I finally got a hold of them. It took a while to find the rears though.
