How are these tires on the highway with noise? What is the estimated life on these tires?

Quiet as hell on the hwy, and I was told of a guy that hauled a 10k trailer on a regular basis, and he had 80k on the Dura's with life left; truck was an F350 DRW

The Dura's are not an "aggressive" tire, but I have never been disappointed by traction issues, while hunting or playing in the snow here
