Is this a viable option or does anyone recommend another direction?

I have the 18's as well. I went with a 15" wheel and snow tire. Keeps the cost down. The closest match to keep the speedometer accurate is 205/65/15. Tire Rack recommends a 195/65/15, but the speedo will be about 1.5% off. With the 205 it's only 0.3% off.
