I know many threads and call me lazy. I'm looking for a more aggresive tire, no road noise and close to same weight as my OE Hankook AT tires. Suggestions and experience? Thanks

Falken Wildpeaks. It's what I wanted on my truck but there were none available because you Americans keep buying them all and us peasants in canada get your leftovers. So i ended up with KO2s

Both the Falken Wildpeak AT3W's and Toyo Open Country AT3's are excellent options.

no answer for you, but I am same boat. I want something a little more aggressive than the factory tires, but not a K02 or some "snow tire" as my dad would call them back in the day.
somebody compared the Nitto Recon grapplers in a thread and seemed to like the non LT version for ride and no noise, thats a tire I am considering

Check out the newer Nitto Recon Grappler. You can get 275/65 for a slightly larger sidewall- in the SL just 4-5 pounds more than stock- so won’t effect MPG much- and is still pretty aggressive:

I just put some Recon Grapplers 295/65r20 on my truck. I only have about 2k miles on them so far but they are great. They are much quieter than Ridge/Terra Grapplers I have run in the past. They also seem to do well in the snow. They are also quieter than my Hancooks on my expedition.

Only time will tell how well they wear.

Not saying you are- but I’m guessing you can’t run 295/65 20’s without at least a front level- is that correct?

I think you would have to have a level. I have a 2" level. No rubbing. The only thing I had to do was zip tie the little rubber flap hanging down on the passenger side wheel well closer to the engine. It was slightly rubbing in reverse at full lock until then. Looked like it was sticking out towards the tire from the factory more than it should have.

Had these on my Last F-150 and loved them, they have a moderately aggressive look and are very quiet on the road, very good wet and dry weather handling.

Don't worry when we build our nuclear bomb impenetrable dome we're going to include a good portion of Canada too!

So that means the recons are less aggressive the the Ridge right ? Still nice capable tire but the Ridge little more aggressive in sound ? What about ride ?

Don't include Toronto or Quebec if you can help it.
HA! I'll talk to the man and see what he says. It may be a hard sell since he wants to make Canada pay for it. :)
