Throw out some brand of tires y’all use on tow vehicles. I’ve got a set of good year wrangler dura trac that has 48,00 miles on them but they are very loud.

I love my Michelin LTX M/S2 tires. They perform well in every on-road situation such as dry pavement, wet, snow (3PMS+real world). The prices are fair from Costco when Michelins are promoted. The only other comment I have they appear very humble for compared to every A/T tire and even most other truck/SUV tires.

I basically have no preference for tires, beyond round and black. [emoticon] But I do go with the regular highway tire, and forego the All Terrain tires. My truck is 99% used to pull the 5th wheel, and that pulling is 99% done on paved roads.

Toyo AT for me.

I have found over the years that the more aggressive tires I have used become louder as they get older. Don't know why.

GY All Terrain Adventure with Kevlar for me. No excessive noise to me. I have beat these hard in the desert, sand etc. Very happy with longevity and performance.

I got just north of 80,500 miles on my last set of Michelins on my work truck dually.
Best tires I've ever owned have always been Michelin.

Duratrac for all intent and purposes, should be labeled traction tires.
I have a set, yes noisy.
Get some Cooper AT3, very little noise. But, if your not in snow and icy conditions, an aggressive highway tire would be a good option.

Michelin from any of the "clubs" are the "best bang for the buck" ! Long wearing, quiet on the highway,good wet weather traction. Not the best in mud/dirt.
