I don't think they are noisy at all and I ran them last winter in the snow with no issues. I actually had them year round with no issues. They are currently sitting in my garage awaiting my new TDI to arrive so I can run them on that. I removed them from my 04 so I can get rid of it with different tires on it.
It was explained to me they are essentially the same tire as Nokians Apptiva AT tire since Cooper apparently makes those for Nokian. I was looking at the Nokians first since I previously had a set of WR's and really liked them. The Coopers were less money. You can run a 245/70/17 on your Treg if you want to gain a little more clearance over stock size. That is the size I was running and also noticed that size put the speedo pretty much dead on.

Question about Cooper Tires
I currently run them on my 06 V8. We use them here in Alaska without studs. They handle great and are not loud at all. I run them without studs here because I'm driving down to Arizona in January and will run them all year around, then drive back to Alaska. Very good tire and I just happened to get a steel of a deal.
I have now done about 10k KM with my Coopers and so far they seem to be a good replacement. There is certainly more road noise than the OEM Good Years but they are a pure town tyre.
In my view the noise is acceptable.
I had the same tyre on my Patrol, ok in the dry, not too much road noise, ok off road, but in my estimation the levels of wet grip where outright dangerous, so much so that I removed and replaced them after 10000k's.
