It Depends.

If your Tyranitar have the Sandstream ability, invest more EVs in Defense and HP rather than Special Defense, because sandstorm boosts the Special Defense of Rock types (Like Tyranitar) by 50%.

So, I would say that 252 HP/180 Defense/76 Special Defense and a Careful nature, or 252 HP/252 Defense/4 Special Defense and again, a Careful nature.

I said this only on Sandstream T-Tar, because there isn't any way for getting a different Tyranitar.
Also, you are more likely to get hit by Physical moves like most Fighting moves, so you could go for 252 HP/252 Defense.
