If you live where there is any snow, I would hesitate putting any tires on the vehicle that are wider than the OEM tires. I've followed people in 4x4's that are driving in deep snow, and instead of sinking down to the base, the vehicle was riding on top, sinking in, riding on top, sinking in. Kind of like Hydro-planing, but "Snow-planing!"
The first thing that came to mind was "how much control can someone possibly have with tires that are riding between the surface of the snow and the base?" I had a 2WD truck and went by the guy without any problem at all as my tires were all constantly sinking to the base while his tires didn't know what to do!
