Need help with new tires!!!

My '06 Commander is in need for some new tires but I don't know which tires to get for it. I've been reading that a lot of people have the BFG A/T's but I don't have a lift on my Commander and don't plan on putting one in. I live in Virginia Beach, VA and don't do any off-roading. The wife and I just use the vehicle for long road trips and when ever we go anyway with our newborn. So what tires have good tread life, tolerable road noise, better tread than the stock tires, and come in stock tire size? Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Yeah, I've checked out tirerack.com but I was just seeing if anybody had any personal opinions from their own experiences as to which tires they like or prefer.

If you're looking for good ride, try the Michellins or similar tires. You need an all-season radial, Michellin makes the Cross Terrain SUV and LTX-MS, both good tires for your use. BFG ATs are good for off road and places that see a lot of snow, but ride rougher and aren't as good in the rain.

2006 XK Sport, 4.7l, QTII- many mods

I'm looking at either the Fortera Silent Armors or the Wrangler Silent Armors to replace my OEM's . I had the former on my 2001 WJ and I thought they were awesome

if you are just on highway use,

look at toyo's or goodyears. if you want a long wearing all-terrain in stock size, get BFGoodrich ATs, they last a very long time and have great traction.

I just installed a set of Big O Big Foot A/T, not a lot of road noise and white letter too. They may be to agressive for you but here in Colorado, I am hoping for a lot of snow this winter.

I think Bridgestone make a good tire for primarily highway/paved road used. Go to a reputable tire shop, ask the owner what he runs on his suv. If it is the right type of tire, it is probably a pretty good one at a decent price.

06' Commander w/ Hemi, AEM Brute CAI, Superlift 4" lift, BFG All Terrain (245/75/17), aftermarket 17" wheels, Tactical Armor front and rear bumper, Steel armadillo rock sliders.

91 Grand Wagoneer - SOA, resprung leaf springs plus add a leaf, 33" tires, cross over stearing, 4.56 gears, high flow exhaust, rebuilt 360 .030 over plus cam, Future mods: ARB Air lockers (front & rear) Heavy Duty Bumpers (front & rear), 12,000 lb winch, fender cutting & flares to fit 35" tires...
