I'll be looking for winter rims and tires soon.  I have 18 inch rims.  Should I stick with 18's or is it ok to use 17 or 19's?  Other than speedometer issues

are there any other disadvantages to a different size?  

 

Thanks,
Ed

These are the tire specifications.  For winter I would use the 17" because it is slightly more narrow and there is more sidewall.

Studless Ice tires are awesome if you can find them in a size that works.. 

I ran the Continentals on my BMW xi and it was like driving on pavement..

 

Shouldn't need chains unless your screwed up by unexpected weather.

 

Old trick,, carry a hank of teh high density nylon rope ,, you can tie loops around the

tire and wheel if you have the clearance from the caliper, don't last long but to get

over a hill or rescue yourself from a bad choice.. 🙂
