Tire size

Quick question... Looking to put winter tires on my mkc. Stock I have the 235/50/18..how much bigger can go tire size wise? My friend offered his snows which are 245/55/18. Would these work? Tia

From my experience, a smaller width is better for winter driving. Moves through the snow easier.

You might get some tire rub when turning with a larger profile too

Wider tires are worse in snow/ice. If anything, drop down to a 17", and more narrow tires.
