All terrain tires for a RAV4??

Time for new tires and I'm thinking about a set of all terrains. Not sure if I should though.. Would I sound like those vehicles that you can hear miles away from tire road noise? I've also heard that they are not necessarily good in snow... Would I have to max out the tunes to cover up the sound? Would the ride be so rough that the headlights would pop out and the sunroof would crack? Apologies if there's a thread about this already, but my search results didn't pull up (could be operator error) anything to help. Looking for some opines from folks that have experience in this area. (thinking about BF Goodrich all terrains) ps. I do like the looks of them.

Just fitted BFG ATs to mine, bit noisier, but nothing (I am used to MTs) too bad. I liked the looks too. They also have the Mountain/Snowflake symbol, which is a certain standard they meet for use in snow.

Maybe consider Yokohama Geolanders too. They look good and are said to be quieter. It comes down to what's available in your size though.
Someone on here recently fitted a set and there's a photo somewhere.

I had Maxxis buckshot on my trooper a few years ago and they were fantastic in sand and loose dirt

A less aggressive, but excellent excellent option for snow/ice/off-road in the nokian WRg-2. I'm a all out BFG M/T, Cooper MT, Stt, (aggressive Truck tires) kinda guy, but Ip like to put the nokians on our suv's and they are impressive. Think our last rav went through three sets of them in its life. One day a coworker of my wife's was commenting on how treacherous the icy drive in to work was (she also has a Rav) and said that her traction light was blinking the whole way into work as the car spun and slid around. My wife asked me if her Rav had one of those lights and I had to tell her Yes it did, it just doesn't blink.

I almost put those dyspro at-m's on my f150 last year. Nice tread on those too, (without being an all out off road tire like I'd put on a bigger truck), but I found out that they didn't come in 20's in the size I needed.
