Was thinking about taking advantage of a local deal on some 225/45/18 snow tires. According to the tire size calculator, the overall size difference is only +2.2% as compared with the OEM Contis at 235/40/18. Or, a 225/40/18 tire would be -1.2% as compared with OEM. I'd prefer a narrower/taller tire for winter duty, not to mention these options are both much cheaper than finding snows in the OEM 235/40/18 size.

What size have you all used for your winter setups?

I used 205/60/16 as per
here that got me hated on Swedespeed.

The general rule is that smaller and narrower is better for winter tires.
