it could help you get fewer pinch flats and better traction in loose terrain due to larger air volume (means you can safely run lower pressures).

a big 19" tire also works well. i like the maxxis IT 19 x 120.

The larger sidewalls also give you more flex and better bite when running rocky terrain. The overall diameter of the YZ's 19" and the WR's 18" are the same.
