Default The old width question...

So I'm 5'8" 205lbs athletic build with a bit of a beer gut. (You'll understand when ur 40!) with a size 9 boot. I ride a 159 all mountain east coast but I picked up a new stiff freeride board (166) for better pow float for my trips out west. I'm a little worried tho because the waist width is 25.7 and I barely get overhang with my stance set up. Should I return the board and drop down to a 162? The problem is the 162's max weight rating is 188lbs. Thoughts?
