I disagree. I've always driven vans, and I've always insisted on the widest tires I could get. I want as much rubber on the road as possible. I hate those wimpy rubber band tires that are so popular and common today. Give me big old fat tires every time.

However, there IS something that does make a difference. The tread pattern. You need to have a tread pattern that deal with wet and icy and slippery conditions. Some tires are good at it, others are totally crap. I've driven in snow, rain, mud, and never had a problem with traction. The only time my vehicles have ever slipped or slid is on black ice, and believe me, it doesn't matter what tires you have in that. A freakin bulldozer would slide in black ice.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

Not true !.  If it was true all truck drivers (and probably the regulatiions / law) would change to the smallest tires.....   Physics say the opposite !.  I don't want to get into it (too lond and boaring) but from the basic laws of physicas your statement / assumption is wrong / incorrect !.

Whonky Tires

I took my car back to the place where I got the tires and they found the problem was with the wheel bearings in the left rear wheel. The bearings were shot. They replaced them and now the car rides quietly like it should. No more whonky noises.
