Posted im the tire section, but not getting feedback from anyone... Thought id try here too.

I'm new to VW and to my Passat. It's 2010 Wagon highline, 6spd

I'm going to need winter tires and would like to get rims (steel if possible) for winter. Can I put on 16" rims even if my stock ones are the 18"'s ?

Will it be too much sidewall? What size should I be looking at putting on if the 16"s fit?

Thanks

yes, I will try and find chart that cross references sizes, what size are your 18 inch tires?
They are 235/40/80.

Thanks for the help.... I found websites that you can compare tire sizes etc... I am more concerned about the drive ability of the car... Tire flex and how more sidewall can/will negatively impact the road handling and road stability.
