Fortuner 17" tyres

Hi, I have a 2017 2.8 gd 6 4x4 fortuner with the OEM Bridestone Dueler 693 tyres 265/65/17. Worst tyres ever :fie: . Only gave 35 000 km an make a terrible squeaky noise when turning at low speeds.
Anyway time fro replacement, which tyre would give me the most mileage for rand? I do mostly in town runs with once weekly highway journey and probably once in 2 months a long trip.
I was advised Hankook would give me close to 80 000 km and ocst around R 2 000 ea. Any better options?
General, Yokos, Goodyear?
Thansk in advance

Mileage you get out of your tyres are very depended on your application, drive style and maintenance,
I know guys that get 100k from BF's and other that does not get 30k
