Question Tires for my Tow vehicle

Need a new set of tires for my F250 Lariat Super Duty 265/70/R17E 121R or 121S
The ones on my truck are BFG Rugged Trail and they have served me well but They are 7 years old and weather cracked from the hot Arizona Sun. I now am living in northern Utah with 4 season weather. 99 percent of my driving is Highway and Freeway driving. I have heard that the second generation of BFG tires don't hold up like the old ones use to. I have been thinking of maybe Michlin LTX M/S 2 or the LTX A/T I want something that is quiet and smooth riding. I have heard that the A/T's hold up better but are noisy and not as smooth riding. What do you use and what do you pull? Also good or bad about the tires that you use on your TV.

Had great luck with Hankook tires on my 06 F-350 4x4. Use them on our work trucks also. When the OEM wear out on my 2012 F-350 4X4 that's what I'm going to.

I'm running Michelin LTX M/S2 on my F250 supercab with 8' bed. I'm towing a Voltage V 3105. I've been happy with the tires. They are wearing well, do well in the rain and while towing. They are quiet on the highway, at least I don't hear them over the diesel engine. Ride is fine, considering it's a pickup truck, and not a luxury sedan.

I don't off road with the truck, it's used for pulling the RV and hauling things at home. I don't drive it in the snow either.

I finally got Mesa M/S A/P 2's They are made by cooper tire here in the usa Half the price of michlins. Big O tires sells them. For the type of driving I do They should be fine. 265/70/R17 E Load range 3942 Lbs Highway tread. They are smooth riding and handle good with no sway or squating. Took the truck up Weber canyon today and took the curves at 65 Mph with no problem tires gripped good with no sliding or sway. Will see how it goes when I am towing.
