he went with 18's cuz he got a good deal on the rims and he likes to show off.


j/k. With good tires 17 or 18 is fine, as long as you keep them thin (under 225) once you go wider than that you can get some sliding problems because of the weight distribution across the large surface. Plus your tires then don't "cut" through the mushy snow as well as they should. Also with an 18 you don't get as much sidewall in the mush or deep snow but that isn't much of a big deal.

I have 225/45/17 Goodyear Eagle Ultra Grip GW3's... tacky as glue in all weather and I love um.

The tires are pretty good, smooth and quiet. Good tread wear. Not a sticky tire by any means, you push it a bit and they squeal like a pig. Priced reasonably.
