how noisy is this tire?

I have a line on a slightly used OE set of these tires - Bridgestone Duravis M773II

I plan them for our 2WD Suburban that sees highway duty. My concern is how much noisier and stiffer they'll be over the set of these it rolls on currently - Uniroyal Laredo HD/H

The Laredos are a big improvement over the A/Ts on it previously.

I'd really like to put on a set of passenger tires in place of LTs since we don't do any heavy duty hauling or towing. In fact I'm looking for a set of half ton knuckles and springs to tame the C2500 ride.

Ever since having two brand new Bridgestone truck tires fail in less than a hundred miles on a loaded 14 passenger van, I won't touch a Bridgestone or any of their related brands.

I've worn out two full sets of Firestones and I'd still be using them if they made that model of tire to fit my current cars.

Full disclosure: I used to work for Firestone, however I have no specific knowledge of the tires in the OP.
Whoever said there's nothing more expensive than a cheap Mercedes never had a cheap Jaguar.

I had two used cars come with Bridgestone Eager tires. Noisy, difficult to balance and sensitive to misalignment. I'm thus not a big fan of Bridgestone myself so I hesitate to jump on this otherwise good deal.
