Our 2012 Dodge 2500HD Cummins truck came with Michelin LT265/70R17E tires. No road noise. I was spared the $1,000 expense to immediately install the Michelins and discard some other brand.

I had three Cooper tires fail catastrophically on my old Dodge 2500 - the last time with a 2700 lb slide in camper on the back on a busy 2 lane Louisiana highway. Not fun. As soon as I reached Alexandria I had them replace the remaining Coopers with Firestone Transforce. They gave me good service (and were relatively quiet), The Transforce tires also came OEM on my new '15 Ram 3500. I've done 10,000 miles on them - almost all towing and am still pleased with their performance. Just my $0.02 worth...

I like the Firestone TransForce HT tires.
We use them almost exclusively on our fleet vehicles.
I have them on my Airstream.
That being said, the TransForce are still second best to Michelin, but also cost less.
I don't ever get the mileage from tires. They dry rot first. Therefore less expensive second best tires are all I need.

I'm running Michelin LTX/MS2s on my Chevy Silverado 2500HD. They seem quite noisy on all roads. I think the prior generation of LTX on this truck were quieter. We got 73,000 miles and zero probs so are encouraged to stay with the brand. I can stand some noise complementing our rolling down the road.
