Anyone install any winter tires on there QX50 ?
I’m trying to avoid going with the 19inch as I’m looking t save money and smaller tires do better in the snow however the 17inch tires and rims that I purchased don’t fit more specifically on the back. Now thinking if 18 inch will work?

I just put Nokian Hakkapeliitta 8 SUV non-studded on my 2019 QX50 on the stock 19" rims this morning. We're supposed to get 4 feet this week. We'll see how it goes. They're a bit noisier than stock on the dry pavement.

I usually buy a separate set of rims and tires for each car for winter. I was hoping the wheels from my 2016 Q50 red sport would fit this car, but they don't. So I sold those (which had Michelin X-ice that were great FWIW). Given the choice, I'd probably choose an 18" wheel for this car for winter. I always size down on wheels to give myself some extra sidewall in case I slide into a curb. On the '19 subaru crosstrek we just got, I went from the stock 18" to 15" rims. It looks cool on that car.
