Which tyres will reduce road noise in my Toyota RAV4?

I have a Toyota RAV4 XTR 2.0L petrol, automatic, 57 plate with 20,000 miles. I need to replace the tyres. Whilst I am happy with the Yokohama Geolanders currently on the car, are there any better tyres for performance/noise?

Michelins tend to be the quietest - either Energy Saver or the Primacy HP, depending on size.
