I'd always thought that as your power went up you wanted to up the diameter ... which lets you use less rpm for the same distance traveled; conversely, you travel further per rpm and if you have the power you get there faster.

I guess I should toss my snow tires on to see if this is true for me though (only other tires I have that are taller, and they are shot anyways)
Don't "think outside the box".
There is no box.
Do it correct, or do it twice.
