Tires on the EX

Ok, had the Ex since Monday and everyone loves the tires and rims on the truck besides me. Love the rims but I cant take the waa waaa waaa off tires sound anymore. I drive more that 50 miles a day and the ride and sound is killing me. I drive so much I still hear the tires rotating in my mind. ahhaha. So, it has he Nitto Grabbers 290/70/17s on it and I want to find a less vocal tire but still preforms out in the dirt and mud. Any suggestions? If I sound crazy go ahead and say it. Just wondering what tires you Ex owners are running. Theres so many to choose from just wanted to check with you guys and ladies. Thanks!

Terra Grapplers are giving you noise? I've never got noise from them. Toyo Open Country A/T's are a good tire.
