I wanted wider because I didn't like how the 225s looked on an 8" width wheel. I didn't care for their winter snow handling and I'm in NJ and PA at least once a month so great snow handling All Seasons are a necessity. And I'm becoming and old fart, I thought new tires would be quieter. Lol. They are but not much.
Oh and being as my last three cars had dedicated summer tires I HATE all seasons. But I have to stick with all seasons for now due to space and $.
