Pirelli Scorpion setup

Currently I have the 20" wheels, whats are the recommended sizes for these tires on my wheels since they don't offer stock sizes?

Is there a reason to get smaller 18 "winter" wheels?

They offer Scorpions in OEM 20" size. I run them and am very impressed / happy with them.

They are available from TireRack. I almost bought them for my 20" (currently summer) wheels... I do think that the 18" are probably better (because they're skinnier) but I'm no expert. You still have a wide patch on the road.

I thought these were the sizes for 20":

Front: 275/40 R 20 106 W XL RSC
Rear: 315/35 R 20 110 W XL RSC

I don't see them listed:
Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

assumed you were looking for the Pirelli Scorpion Ice and Snow (which come in OEM size)...
