Do you know what kind of clearance you have with your summer wheels? If its pretty tight--and your winter tires are at least 1 inch smaller I'd say no. What size are your winter wheels?

all brake kits have what is called a brake profile which can be used to determine wheel clearance. Ask your brake supplier for the profile

here's a link to all of StopTechs brake profiles

It would be easier to test fit the wheels.
