From page 408 of the owner's manual
SNOW TIRES
Snow tires should be of the same size and type construction
as the front tires. Consult the manufacturer of the
snow tire to determine any maximum vehicle speed
requirement associated with the tire. These tires should
always be operated at the vehicle maximum capacity
inflation pressures under any load condition.

I just put 4 snow tire's on mine. All the tire dealers I talked to recommended it. I know the 20" snow tire's are quite pricey, so I installed 17" steel rim's & tire's. The only problem will be your speedometer will be off by a few kmph. Plus they look stupid after looking at the 20" chrome's for so long.

Safest place for one snow tire....... on the spare! and make sure you have the TPMS sensor in it.... you wouldn't want it to run flat.

your speedometer won't be off unless the overall height of the wheel and tire change. wheel height is only half of the equation. the stock 20" wheel/tire is just a bit under 33". by varying the aspect ratio you can find a 17" combo that will be the same. here is just an example and I like to use the Discount Tire website.

a 265/75-17 is within 0.3" of the factory 20" combo.
