It'd be nice to have more tire in the winter and for crappy fire roads, but giving up a combined 2" of contact on the road seems like a deal breaker.
first off, it is actually better to have narrower tires for snow driving. second, even though our wheel are 7 inches wide, the oem tires are 205 wide. usually a 7 inch wheel uses a 215mm size tire. just saying.
