For casually enjoying the trails, no advantage at all.

Without also changing the fork (and then changing the steerer angle) you wind up with a larger rim taking up valuable tire space, limiting you to 1.5-1.75” of tire vs. the stock 2-2.5” available.

There is some advantage to go and fit the largest tires your frame and fork can fit.

that is a sweet machine you’ve got there.

If you’re seldom/never in sloppy mud, you can go with smaller knobs and a larger carcass tire for greater squish over rocks & roots.
