Since my railroad is "operation oriented" and the majority of my rolling stock is Aristocraft I put Aristo knuckle couplers on all my equipment. However, I have found that they fail to function properly after a couple of years so I have changed everything over to Kadee's.
Although 90& of my railroad is now RCS battery I had installed metal wheels on all equipment to minimize plastic residue of the track resulting from the plastic wheels. Even though I don't have to worry about "electric pickup" anymore i still change all new cars over to metal wheels because I found the cars with metal wheels track better than the plastic and of course, the metal wheels sound a lot better banging over a diamond or frog. I've used Raymond and San Val wheels in the past but now use Bachman's based on cost.
