Looking for aggressive looking street-friendly (quiet) tires

Here's the deal - we have the BFG M/T tires for weekends, camping etc.

We are looking for a more agressive looking tire (mainly the sidewall) that is best for every-day use. The main characteristic it should have is that it's fairly quiet.

Our "weekday" tires are stock Goodyear 245/65/17

I would like to go to a 265/70/17 tire for every day use.

We have had the Nitto Terra Grapplers on our Tahoe and thought they were a little too noisy. I do see they make them in P-metric sizes though. I wonder how much quieter those would be?

Any ideas?

Check out the hankook dynapro atm. I put a set on my wife's liberty for the exact reasons you're looking for.

Love my Revo 2's. Very quiet and they actually do quite well off road.

I went with Michelin M&S after tossing the junk Fortweras after 35K miles. Good aggressive look, wears like iron and great in snow and rain. Looked at Hankook ATMs but was advised against them because I would have to change tire size and a friend at the dealer said doing this could cause problems with the speed sensing.

MIchelin LT-X 265-65-17 Excellent black ice tire and handles all Colorado high country snow conditions. Very quiet at 40 psi. About 3% speedo error.

x2! I just put a set of these on my Commander in factory size and have been pleasantly surprised as to how quiet they are on asphalt. I've gotten a ton of compliments on the looks.

Had 'em. Liked them well enough. Actually liked the Terra Grapplers better. They would be a litle on the noisy side for our every day tires.

The Firestone Destinations looks like they've got some good reviews for comfort on Tirerack.com
