Welcome to ford tough.ca, congrats on the new STX !!! Post up some pics of your new ride when you have a chance!
Not sure what advantage you're looking to gain by going with a larger snow tire ?
I would think you'd be better off sticking with the factory sizing of 265/75/17....go larger and your traction is going to suffer on slippery roads.
Definitely a good idea to swap to a set of dedicated snow tires though.... I've done that for my last two trucks and it's worth it. (17 inch steel wheels from Ford are cheap too, you recover most of the cost by saving on mounting and balancing twice a year.)
There are several threads here discussing winter tires, so have a look around, there's lots of good info to be found regarding specific brand recommendations.
