Tire question

I have a 2015 Pro X with 30,000 miles. Bought new and regularly tow a bass boat to a few lakes that occasionally need the 4 wheel drive.
I’m thinking about swapping out the off road Hankooks for a less aggressive Michelin tire.
Less noise, better rain and road traction and still I have 4 wheel drive for times i get off road.
Current tires are 4 years old and still look like there’s 75% tread left but a better road tire seems the way to go.
Any thoughts?

Love my Michelin LTX Defenders in 265/70-16...though you may need to go w/ just Michelin LTX for your 265/75-16s. I'm 100% street driven, fwiw.

Discount Tire gave me some trade-in credit for my lowish mile BFG Long Trails when I opted for the Defenders.

Since I don't know how aggressive your tires are I'll chime in. I have Falkin Wildpeak AT3s in a p metric rating. Technically considered a passenger car tire. They are great on road and light offroad. I do no offloading unless you count pulling our camper (5000 lbs loaded) into a campground. Great looking tire, good in the rain. As for noise these are quiter than the BFG KO2s. They're rated for 55k but with regular rotation, they last 70. I'm running a 265/70/17 which measures 32" tall and 11" wide at the cross section. I also have aftermarket wheels, but these will fit stock wheels also.
Good luck in your search.

I'm a big fan of BFG K02's. But that's a heavy off-road tire. I think I put on about 40k on them so far and they look great. Another alternative that I ran for a while was the BFG Rugged Terrains. Since you don't really need a dedicated off-road tire, may the Rugged Terrains would be a good choice. However, on tire rack, the rugged terrains scored worst in the "comfort" category then the k02s... I had both. Both are great.

I just installed Michelen LTX A/T 2's. Not strictly a street tire and not a true off road...worked well recently at a very sandy/mushy boat ramp.

Had a big/lifted 2WD truck at the ramp next to me that was lucky to get his trailer out of the water. Spinning wheels, etc.

I was in 4WD/4L and didn't slip once.

I put on a set of Firestone Destination LE2 last year and have been extremely satisfied with their smooth and quiet ride. Good looking also, with nice outline white letter.

He also said he was looking for a quieter tire. I know the falkins are quite. Might not be quiter than he has, but I don't know how loud his are.
He could also just ho with an all season radial like Nissan puts on the standard 4x4.

Honestly Wild Peaks are the best tire for the money and they are really quiet

Usually you can hear the woom woom woom woom of the tire spinning

I only hear them when I turn when I am not moving if that isn't convincing I don't know what is
