I have the 265/70/17 duratracs in load range C and am very pleased with them. The wear on them has been great at 30,000 miles. I do a 5 tire rotation so I'm sure that has helped at this many miles. Most people still think the tires are new.
They will fit fine with your 2" R/C lift. I have the RR 2.25 in front and OME HD springs in the rear with stock wheels (no spacers) and get pretty minimal rub. If I turn full lock it will rub, but since you have spacers it shouldn't be a problem.
Traction off road is great. I have been mostly in mud, sand, and a few rocky areas. No idea about snow (I live in Houston) but I hear they do great. Traction is very good on wet roads as well.
The noise is definitely more than stock forteras, but still quieter than a M/T. They are even more quiet when compared to my brothers BFG All terrains..
