Icon5 Continental Contra trac tires 16"

I have 28,000 miles on these tires and the road noise is terrible in my cab. Is this just this brand of tires? Does anyone with these tires have the same problem? I am thinking of replacing these tires with the Goodyear wrangler OEM tire. Any comments on the goodyear wrangler, if these tires are noisy?
Thanks

I've heard bad things about the Wranglers, I believe they are even worse

The OEM Wranglers aren't loud at all. But they're only good on dry pavement. They suck in rain, snow and mud. As soon as it starts raining I start sliding.

These tires will get you hurt. Haha Driving to the store in the rain yesterday, had to get on it to get across the street real quick, did nothing but spin the whole way. Had my dad scared to death LOL

Ya I have to be careful on corners on the highway, I've been sideways at 90 km/h a couple times just from wet pavement.
