...I was planning on dropping a size or two to save some money on the winters.
...
Dropping a size as in going to higher profile/skinny tire or, dropping down to
17 or 16 inch?

The latter requires new winter wheels, not that a cheap steel set can't be
picked up. Or, a slightly higher profile 60 series tire, though the front wheel
well may be a tight fit on turns...

TireRack, et al, show Bridgestone Blizzaks in std 18" size, and while not
cheap, as you probably know, it is all about dedicated snow tires for
going in winter.

Hei,

I have Santa Fe winter tyres 235 / 65 x 17". Do these fit in ix35?

Thanks!
I assume you have GLS, with oe 17" wheels?

Using the handy dandy tire size calculator, that set of tires you have
should fit on Tuc's 17" wheels, but they are taller & slightly narrower tires,
(good for snow), but have a 3/10ths inch taller radius, a half inch wider/taller
diameter, and will under read on the speedo about 2%...
All size diff are approximate. The key will be, do they clear inside your
wheel wells, when mounted. Worth a shot, if the winter set is in good shape, imo.
GL, mD
