Why we use wire-O binding? Here's the advantages:

Firstly, the wire-O binding can make the book opens flat and stay flat, and full page for spreads, no hidden parts for cross page pictures.

Secondly, the book can be folded back-to-back. You can have 2 covers in totally different design. For example, one cover for girls, and then turn to another cover for boys. One for summer and one for winter, etc.  Very interesting.

No limits for cover size, you can print large formats.
