I will be replacing the original tires that were on the vehicle when purchased new ( Bridgestone Ecopia H/L422 Plus, 265/50R20 107T) They have performed well overall.
I am interested in what may be an upgraded all season tire, focusing on comfortable and quite ride as primary features. I have researched tires online and received recommendations from various tire dealers. Currently I am getting different recommendations without a clear direction. The top 3 recommendations appear to be the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus , the Michelin Defender LTX M/S and the Pirrelli Scorpion Verda Plus 2. Is there a better tire if mileage and price are not the top priority, with a focus on comfort? Our primary use is touring across the country, not off road.
Any input is appreciated.

Ive really liked Continentals lately. I havent had any on my '15 but I had them on my '04 and they were great. I forget which model, but I've used a couple different models on my various vehicles and it really seems like Conti is making great tires overall right now.

I also find Tireracks decision guide to be super helpful

I haven’t pulled the trigger yet. What has been your experience regarding comfortable ride and road noise. These are the priority attributes for me.

I purchased Nitto a/t tires to replace my current set of stock tires. I had them installed last week. I was planning to get dedicated winter tires but decided to get all-terrain instead. I want to take advantage of it being cost-effective and versatile. I am also satisfied with the comfortable ride and reduced noise.

Rub front inside fender liner at full lock. On-road Ride/performance great. Much quieter than Nitro Terra Graps or BFG KOs but still get a low frequency thrum between 40-45 mph when they need rotated. Off-road not so great... massive wheel spin required to clean out in sticky stuff, sand their ok (aired down) and snow/ice was fine. My biggest letdown was on hard dusty trails where they chattered and bounced when slipped causing all kinds of problems for the traction control. Real herky jerky.
