I realize that the width is a little different... but would these fit onto STi wheels? The snows that I have on them are absolutely horrifying.

The size is 215/45/17. I assume they would fit.

Is there any disadvantage safetywise to my having a 215/45/17 where there used to be a 225/45/17? If I can get someone to confirm that this is both possible and safe, I think I'd like to come pick these up. These snows are so worthless in wet and dry that I wouldn't mind sacrificing some snow performance.

In my extremely uneducated opinion, going down a size in width would actually be benefical. You have less surface area on the ground, and therefore have the same amount of pressure being applied but in a smaller area, thus allowing for better grip in the snow. Like snowshoes vs. spikes, you want to be able to sink through snow and grip, not float around on top.

But hey, I could be completely wrong. Just my $.02

you actually WANT more surface of your tire to touch the ground in the snow....thats why some deflate their tires for more traction.

Not really. Wide tires tend to float on top of the snow. Narrow tires cut through the snow better.

If you look at most pickup trucks used for plowing, you'll see tall and narrow tires rather than fat tires.

I once drove a Nissan 4x4 pickup with pretty big all terrain tires up some remote fire roads in California. The tires were great for rocks, logs, and most trails but when I got up higher and encountered snow, the truck slid all over the place. The tires wouldn't dig in to gain traction.

^^^^ What he said.. If you are going for deep snow then wider is better because they float on the snow kinda like snow shoes. For driving on the street you want something (narrower) that will dig in and get down to pavement.

The contact area will be the same, but the shape will be different. Contact area is defined by the weight of the car and the tire pressure, not the size of the tire. The benefit here is the slightly longer and narrower patch.

Sean, these tires are 1.4% smaller circumference than you stock tires, not a big deal (your speedo will read a bit high). I had this size tire on a 7" wide wheel before with no issues. You'll sacrifice quite a bit of snow performance compared to your snows, but if you're sticking around coastal CT that won't be an issue.
