With such kind of comment, his trustworthiness might be judged again because saying a Chinese brand better than all these reputable brands in the market is not a wise suggestion in any way.
My honest suggestion is to go for Yokohama Advan dB v552 if you find Michelin loud and noisy, by the way, which Michelin tires are you using? Primacy 3 or Primacy 4?
You can also give Continental UltraContact 6 (UC6) a try, also very good tires, and try to STAY AWAY from Chinese tires. However, if you're planning to buy smuggled tires, then it's better to go for Chinese ones, otherwise, if you're getting the original ones, then it's the best choice for you.
If you have budget constraints, you can also look for Dunlop or Bridgestones.
Hope it helps.
