I like size appropriate, some cars come with too wide of tire for their wieght IMO. My 3000 lb malibu is better suited for 205 probably 195 in the winter or rain than the factory 215. Cobalt is 400 lbs lighter with 195, escorts and sentra's I've owned about same weight as the Cobalt had 155's and they cut thru the snow great. Barry say's wider are better and I believe it, but it's a compromise between traction and rolling.

If going summer and winter, go wide summer, narrow winter.
