Just go to Tire Rack and plug in your numbers. Also depends on the brand you want to use.

:thumbdwn: That's not the way it works. Everything else being equal, narrower tires are better in snow.

Other than catastrophic dumps when only Subaru's and Jeep's move, is there even a justification for thinking about driving in the snow in the DC area? IIRC, what little snow falls on DC melts pretty quick.

If you're not going to change the rim width, you should check with the tire manufacturer (or the specs on the Tire Rack's website) to see if a 255 is acceptable on your rim. If your signature is accurate, you have 18x8 rims, and I believe the widest tires for those are 245's.

TBH, you probably won't see or notice any difference between a 245 and 255. You'll probably need to go to the 275/35-18 size for that, and then you'll need wider rims too.
