12.5" wide footprint is going to equal less tire pressure per square inch vs a 10.5" tire of the same tread pattern.. narrower tires are preferred for winter driving for improved traction in snow and ice conditions (properly siped)..
the wider tire means you are more likely to slide..
all be it.. i loved my 36x12.5s in snow fun as hell to play with.. but for proper braking and steering you want to increase your footprint pressure lb/sq in..
