305's to 285's

so here is my dilemma i had 305/70R16 good year wrangler mtr's and they made my truck look amazing, so many complements. only problem they are just terrible in the snow. so when i had to put tires on my truck i went with 285/75R16 dunlop rover m/t's witch are just as tall, only difference is they aren't as wide, so i though they would still look good, man was i wrong, i doesn't look terrible, but it just doesn't look the same, it is depressing. they are a lot better in the snow, but if anyone was thinking of down sizing there tires for better snow performance DON'T do it, it is not worth it.

03 super cab, 6.0l, short bed, 4x4, muffler and cat delete, 285/75R16 dunlop rover m/t, SCT x3 tuned by kem performance, auto meter gauges, cfm intake manifold.
