Default Suggestion for Land Rover Freelander 2 tyres

The existing Goodyear Wrangler M+S 235/65R17 tyres of my 2014 Freelander 2 SE have completed nearly 45,000 kms. It is time for a change. The car is primarily driven in cities and for roadtrips. I have had limited off-roading opportunities.

I am looking for suggestion for replacement options for the following two scenarios:
1. Tyre size remaining the same
2. Larger tyre size without changing the rim.

Look forward to your inputs.

Look around on the forum and you'll see that premium car owners usually love Michelin (example thread). It's my no. 1 tyre brand too, followed by Yokohama. Would suggest you go for the Michelin Latitude Sport 3 (top choice), or Yokohama Geolandar.

Maxxis 235-65-17 with pattern AT771 can be considered. 235-65-17 of Nankang in SP 5 and SP 9 patters can be considered if you are looking for more life for tires. 265 65 17 Nankang SP7 or SP9 can be larger tyre with out changing rim.

For some reason Amazon is alerting that Michelin Latitude Sport 3 235/65 - R17 104W is not compatible to Freelander 2 SE.

Any advise?
