Question 2003 Express AWD Tire Suggestions

Howdy all. I have an '03 AWD express and I'm looking to put new tires on it. Now, the wheels/tires currently on the van are not stock. Currently running 255/55/18 Sumitomo HTR Sports. Don't mind these tires at all as they seem to work quite well despite the fact that the fronts are pretty much gone and the rear only have about 50% left. Just wondering what experience you all have with what tires work best with this vehicle. The Sumitomos I have on it now are a tad noisy, but I think that's because they are almost gone. I'm leaning toward the Sumis mainly cause of the look (they look great on the van) and they start with very good tread depth when new (14/32), but I'm definitely open to any suggestions you all might have. What tires would you guys recommend? If it helps I'm gonna be driving this van 900+ miles on the highway just about every week for a while. Thanks.

Best tires I ever put on my van were Bridgestone Transforce HT.

Wow just did some research on those tires and they seem like they would be very nice... however, didn't see where they had any size that would work with my current setup... of course, I don't know much about sizing tires so given what I have now I'm not sure what other doors that opens up
