Replacing Cheap Chinese Tires

My CPO 2016.5 Sport came with these Geotour tires on them. I can’t find any info about them online but the car is becoming unbearably loud on the highway. Is this tire noise or is a high level of road noise just something I should get used to? I’m trying to figure out if a new set of tires (and maybe an upgrade to 19s) is worthwhile.

I have a 16.5 sport with 18" Yokohama Geolanders, about 42k mi.

They are getting a little noisy but very even treadwear and adequate for summer.

I think most tires get noisy as they age.
They rate tires by noise level in Europe but not here.

Different people have different experience with some tires. It might be because of local road and weather conditions.

Where do you drive and what kind of use, etc?
