Looks good! Jersey you ended with the same size as the Cooper's you had right? How do the Michelin's compare? Is the noise the difference? I know the specs are the same as the Zeons but are they the same or slightly smaller/larger?

Same size as the Coopers I had. As far as the noise difference, all I can say is what noise? These are damn near silent, quieter than the Forteras and much quieter than the Zeons. They look good, but the Coopers had a more aggressive appearance, I miss that, but not the noise. As you said, the specs are the same, and I definitely don't notice any differences in the size.
I'm very happy with these tires, can't wait to get them out in the snow and see how they do. I had them out on a soft sand trail last week and they did a fine job.

So was the noise the main objection with the Zeons noise, look or both?

A little more complicated than that. I loved the look, I didn't care for the noise from the tires, but it was nothing I couldn't get used to. My wife hated the noise and didn't care for the look. I hated the noise from my wife, so I changed the tires.

hahaha, Got it! Yep the noise from the wife is worse than than any noise from an AT tire. That's one reason I'm asking so many questions.
