2003 V8 - Seeking highway tire recommendation

Vehicle is a 2003 V8 Limited
Current tires are P265-65-R17 110S Michelin Defenders. I was quite happy with those and had maybe 2 years left, but they all got slashed. Luckily I had a set of junk tires on old wheels to use in the meantime so I have the luxury of time to shop around. Not opposed to buying used tires from a fellow 4R owner.

All of my driving is highway, and I do run dedicated winter/snow tires so I'm not concerned with snow grip or off-road prowess.

I'd like a tire that has low rolling resistance for economy and a relatively quiet ride.

And yes, I know, if I was that concerned about MPG I should buy a Prius, etc. I'm choosing to run my 4R as efficiently as I can within reason.

Stay with the Michelins. I have an '03 V8 and they are all I use, very happy with their performance.
