Winches for 1986 O''''Day 272

Looking to replace Barlow winches #15 and #16 on my 1986 O''Day 272. It looks like most winches that size are non-self-tailing, but I''d like to have self-tailing winches to replace the #16''s. Will getting a bigger winch cause any problems, other than to my wallet? Also interested in feedback on those rubber add-on collars that WestMarine offers to convert standard winches to self-tailing.
