SUV tyre a bit on the rough pattern design that is why they have H/T, A/T and M/T, but most after it wears down normally will be a bit noisy. Even my previous set was Conti Comfort Contact 1 (passenger car model) which after worn down was very noisy too.
The Yokohama are made durable. To me they are not bad and have seen quite a few SUV on them too, but after checking the catalogue, I am sad to say they don't have your tyre size. Closest is 225/60R17 which is smaller and 235/65R17 which is bigger....
Hmmm maybe I'll try to rotate them since I haven't really rotate the tyres (FWD).
As for the size, I think 235/65R17 should settles it cuz I just have to deal with thicker tyres hahaha. Better ride quality, no? :driver:

235/65R17 is 3.29% bigger in overall diameter. Make sure you have enough wheel space to cater for the larger tyres. Yes, with higher sidewall profile it will be more comfy but initial acceleration you will feel slight drag. Need more power to turn larger wheel. Braking from high speed may need slightly more pressure. Because stopping a larger diameter tyre.
If okay with all the above, then go ahead....:driver:

Hey bro, do you recommend these tyres for SUV? My current ones are pretty harsh and noisy. They're 235/60R17 all round with GY Wrangler HP at the front & Toyo Open Country UT at the rear.
Bro. s.marz, Currently testing GY Wrangler Triplemax in my Forester, have your size.....:driver:

Did another tyre rotation as the front left tyre seems to have the highest wear. This was done in Sep2018 as I misplace the pictures changing my SD card. Mileage is about 37k km at 4 years of use.

Rear tyres still have plenty of thread pattern balance and this is after 37k km already......
