I'll def do 225 in the rear, but should i do 205 or 225 in the front? What will the difference be in these 2 setups?

Basically comes down to tire selection. If you want maximum snow capability but still want to use H rated snows, I'd go 205/50 on the front. If you want the maximim snow traction and are willing to use the Q rated tires, I'd go with Blizzak WS-50 with 225/45R17 all around. This is the setup that the former moderator, Eddie, used on his 330CI last year and he loved the results.

I'd use h rated snow tires, as the snow isn't too bad here. With this being the case, you'd recommend 205 in the front and 225 in the rear?
