It's just too risky, and even last night when it wasn't snowy, just really wet, I noticed the lack of grip in the tyres compared to my smaller alloys.
what tyres have u got? In the dry, the wider ur tyres, the more grip u'll have! This may not be the case in snow. But in the wet I guess it depends on the design of ur tyre. I certainly have LOTS LOTS LOTS more grip in the wet with my 18" Goodyear Eagle F1s than some cheap 14" tyre that looks like it's come off a bus. I can practically drive like a loon in the wet, 30mph sharp corners and still not lose grip! With my 14" wheels, I can skid out at 10mph! I guess it depends on ur tyres, but I wud have thought the ones on ur 18's wud be better!
