Its that time of the year in the midwest.... I recently put on my winter rims and my tires are much closer to being shot than I remembered, rears are much worse than the fronts... I thought I had another season left in them, oh well.

The current rims are the stock 18s for the car
18x8 - 225/40/18 - front
18.8x.5 - 255/40/18 - rear
Since I'll be buying rears, I'll probably just replace the fronts too... my question(s) are what size to go. I know narrow is good for digging into snow, but will wider tires give better traction on packed snow?

Option 1:
Keep the existing rears and stretch a 225/45/18 to get a slightly narrowier tire for winter

Option 2:
Try to find / buy another two front 18x8 rims so I am running 18x8 all around and 225/40/18 all around -- they will clear the brakes, I checked.

Option 3:
I'll have to check, but look into getting the stock 17s and run those all around (if they fit) to get a more narrow tire
