Tires noise reduction?

Hello,
I am about to buy a 2012 JKU Sahara.
It comes, according to the spec sheet, with P255/70R18 OWL On/Off-Road Tires, not sure what brand that would be though. As I am, sadly enough , going to drive primarily on paved roads, I was wondering if anybody has any experience with the stock tire noise and if there is a better option out there (that will fit the stock 18 inch wheels)?
Cheers.

Those are pretty quiet tires, nothing to worry about.

Stock Sahara tires are primarily street tires.

^This. They are Bridgestone Duelers. Calling them off road tires would be quite a stretch.

My buddy changes his Duelers on his Sahara to BFG rugged trail A/Ts and loves em. They're a little more aggressive tire than the Dueler, but quiet on the road.

Duelers ARE quiet. And they served my trips across the winter ice/snow pack Santiam Pass numerous times without issue.

They do fail in mud/goo/and general muck.

My Kelly TRS are also quiet, unless I pick up some driveway rock, which then clickety clickclick.

A neighbor has something on his little SUV econobox you can hear coming a mile away....although his rig is always extremely muddy and has evidence of some kind of 4wheeling, and he usually has a smile.

Gravel road tires, maybe. No more.
