Many of us are Goodyear Duratrac fans for Daily Driving and they have the snowflake rating.

Not sure who this bozo is, but the Duratracs do well in the snow:

Dextreme hmmmm....Why do you feel a 17" rim is a upgrade? The main risk are more $$$ for tires. I have 17" rims on my full size truck and hate having to buy tires for it.
