The way the wheel well is set up, height does tend to be more of an issue than width for rubbing. It is tighter than I would want to go for a winter setup. Even if it doesn't rub, it would make you more prone to getting ice/snow chunks wedged up in between the tire and fender and getting rubbing on the snowpack.
