The biggest concern here is that all four tires be within 3/32's of an inch in tread depth as Scot850 alluded to.

They will be perfect. There is basically no difference between a 185 and a 195 tire. Tire quality is of greater importance than a 185 to 195 difference. That is, a good 185 tire will be more stable than a cheap 195 tire. Great idea to use snow tire in winter. Keep in mind to always have identical tires in front and rear with an AWD, and this also accounts for tire wear.
