225/35/19 front winter tires ?

Dear All,

Winter is coming soon, and I am ready to put the car back on its winter wheels.

I made the mistake of getting 19 inchers for the winter without knowing about the front wheelarch issues. My front 245/35/19 Michelin Pilot Winter rub in the wheelwells when turning.

I was wondering whether I can run 225/35/19 instead of 245/35/19 in the front ?

Thank you everyone for your help in advance.

It's June, what do you mean winter is coming soon?

19inch low profile winter tires isn't a good idea. I would do something like 225/45/r17 all around. Or 40.

Winter tires should always be staggered. If your rears are 245 make the front the same.
