Change wheel size for.volvo xc60? 20-> 18

Wondering if anyone can give me some confirmation on a tire change I am considering.

Vehicle: 2014 Volvo xc60 with 20in wheels

The recommended tire size is on the door of my Volvo: 255/45R20
I would like to use: 255/55R18

Are these compatible?

The 20 inch tires are really expensive and actually very hard to find winter tires. Need to be a bit budget sensitive.

I was considering going for an 18inch wheel for my winters. Just wanted to ask if anyone has heard of issues in the past for volvos changing wheel size down? And if I should consider any other impacts or changes?

I should also mention my plan is to keep the 20.inch tires for summer.

Hey, sorry for confusing wording. bit ESL.

Okay I'll take a look at 235/60R18.

The shop I went to said 255/55R18 (when I told them I currently have 255/45R20) would work too. But I can't say fully trust them (it a department store tire shop).

Is there somewhere that lists recommended tire sizes by.model and year?

This site provides wheel and tire information for every model year by engine.

Also, the 255/55R18 tire will fit 8x18 wheels without a problem if you choose to go that size.
