Yea you really should keep the same size, is your car rwd or awd? I would just buy the same size, search tirerack, ebay, cl, or forum

Btw 225 seems wide for winter tires, You should go 205 next time IMO.

That's exactly what I would do in your case. With the amount of miles you put on them the old ones should still have most of the tread left on them anyway so I don't see any reason to replace all 4. He is just trying to scare you into spending a little extra $$$
