A good looking quiet tire help

It is time to start looking at new tires . I have a 2017 two door with the stock BF Goodrich M/T in 255/75-17 and i need a quiet tire . I have no lift and would like a bigger tire in an ALL Season very tired of the M/T,s . This is a Blacktop only Jeep and would really like to hear something other then the tires .

Any thoughts

BFG KO2's are a good A/T tire. Pretty quiet and looks decent.

02 WJ Laredo, heavily optioned but stock
12 JK, 3.5" Teraflex/Franken lift, Bilstein 5100's, BFG KM3's 37x12.5/R17
17 WK2 Trailhawk

X2.

And as I have mentioned before- if you leave this question open long enough you will get recommendations both for and against each and every tire seemingly made.

Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac in 255/75R17, had them on my 2dr 2012 Sport and 4dr 2012 Rubicon for about 100k miles between the two.

I love my Duratracs but the OP is looking for a highway tire which means he does not want an all terrain. Highway tires are infinitely quieter than any tire mentioned in this thread.

I would honestly say the DuraTrac is equal to the factory 255/75R17 Wrangler SR-A as far as road noise.

I have to disagree with that assessment. I have had them on my 2007 as well my 2014. So I think I am on my fourth set and the same thing always happens. They start off pretty quiet but in fairly short order they develop a distinctive hum that is not loud like an MT tire but certainly much louder than a highway tire or the factory Bridgestone dyelers a Sahara comes with.

OP, you can probably buy some Sahara tire / wheels take offs for cheap and be happy.

BFG Long Trail or Rugged Trail I didn't get any tire noise out of them. Rugged Trail did better in the snow than the Long Trail...

I like the Cooper Discovery AT3's. I have had them on my Suburban and got over 60k on them. They are quiet, great in rain and snow. The cost is a little less the KO's not by much.
