There is a big discussion between adventure motorcyclists on superiority of 21" vs 19" vs 17". While there is a difference, the biggest issue is lack of the rubber in 17".

How much snow can you get in Finland? In up state New York/Great lake area they can get 5-6 feet of snow in one snowstorm, and everyone in country side owns at least one truck in the family. If it only falls a couple inches a time and there no steep hills car with good tires in any size will be fine
