Winter tire recommendations

just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for winter tires you used on your Sedona. also what size you have. our 2017 came with 18 inch rims. I woudl most likely have to get 17 inch rims and tires as 16s may be too small.

On our old van we had yokohama ig20's they were really good.

I personally found General Arctic to be very good. Inexpensive, yet highly rated.
I had them on two cars and were fantastic.

I always tend to go with the smallest possible rim as tires are less expensive and rims are lighter. Besides, you gain side wall height that helps in winter. Also, width should be smaller - say 225 was "summer", winter shall be 205.

I have 235/55R18 Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 mounted on Andros N3 18" from my 2012 Toyota Sienna XLE AWD. I love them and I hope they fit in my Sedona.

Toyota and KIA share bolt pattern (most of them are 114.3 mm). Offset might be a problem...

I was planning on trying one wheel on this weekend but it's cold and we have rain. I won't be changing wheels until late November being that I'm in the northeast. I hope to get a chance to try soon and I will definitely report back!

It's pretty warm today in New York, but I got sick and tired of waiting for the weather to drop below 45* F. So I decided to just put on my winter set today. I took pics, as someone from this thread requested, of as many angles as possible. So be warned, this might eat up your data if you're looking at this on your phone and you don't have an unlimited plan. Lol.
