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.

Your description is a bit confusing. However, there is nothing wrong with changing from 20" wheels to 18" wheels. Many people do this for winter driving. You'll have two different sets of tires and wheels, but the overall diameter should be the same. The 18" tires will have a higher profile than 20" tires. The recommended tire size for 18" wheels on the XC60 is 235/60R18.
