I'm sure it's on this forum somewhere, but I haven't found it yet. So I have an extra set of stock wheels that I want to put winter tires on. Ideally, I'd like to keep the same dimensions all they way around. I'm open to suggestions, but was looking for input into size and Tire choices

Option 1
Pirelli Scorpion Ice and Snow 265/45/20

Option 2
Pirelli Scorpion Ice and Snow 275/40/20

Option 3
Michelin Latitude Alpin 275/40/20

Why do you want to keep the same sizes all around, you can't rotate fr to rr with different width wheels eh.

Tried selling them on here (Wheels and Tires) but no interest so I guess I'll keep them. Can't rotate the wheels, but could rotate the tires if need be. I'm open to other options for tire sizes for Winter. Any suggestions? I know I could get an 18" package from tirerack or get to 9" wheels for the rear, but assuming I use stock wheels, what would work best

I've ran 275/45-20's all around, I've seen 275/40's, they do work fine, if not directional you can still at least rotate side to side, that does help with scalloping of the tread blocks. I'm running 245/45 pirelli ice/snows on the front and 275/40 on the rear, a descent compromise between winter traction and retained handling when the roads are dry and clear. Another option you can do, look at the cost of 20x9 replicas all around, and a descent 245/45, 255/45, or 275/40 to run on all corners, I can't see why someone wouldn't pay an equivalent value for oem wheels to cover your total cost.....

If I was doing this again, I'd pick 20x9 wheels all around and, for a performance winter or mild conditions, 245/45 bridgestone LM-60's, speed rate
d so they'd still handle the dry road good, and one of the newest designs on the market for performance winter traction so I don't think any others on that category would work as well. All out winter traction, I'd be in the 275/40 Nokian Hak 7 or 5's for studded traction, or Hak R's for studless. Directional but you can still rotate fr to rr.

If they're readily available in your area, nothing wrong with those at all.
