As PFFOG mentioned, if you frequently go through tires, one can easily tell differences, as it wouldn't have been too long since the last set of tires.

I sell, mount, and balance tires out of my home shop. I've been messing with this, ~10yrs. I've ordered in various tires, just to try them. If I don't like 'em, I flip them to someone at a discount. Most people truly don't know one tire from another; they just want something to replace the worn out tires. Doing this, I've pretty well figured out the better performing tires. The locals know this and appreciate my efforts.

Is an opinion reliable?

Agreed, especially if one has higher-level track experience.
