Yes they'll be fine.

I've ended up sticking with an 18" staggered setup for my winter tyres with OEM sizes: 225/40/18 and 255/35/18. Yes, it shouldn't be as good in snow as narrower 225-rears, but I'm more interested in overall cold-weather performance.

I previously ran 225-width all-round and found an obvious compromise on the rear traction after moving from 255-width summer rubber. Hoping this year's setup will be more of a compromise towards cold weather performance.
