Is 225 65 17 106H ok to use on stock rims?

2006 Commander CRD based in Europe. Currently have my summer tyres on the stock rims and am running winter tyres on a set of 17 2006 Grand Cherokee rims which seem fine (but I think the offset is slightly different though). I run the winter tyres nomally end of Nov to end March (sometimes a bit later). I'm currently running 245 winter tyres, but when I replace them I was wondering about using 225 65 17s. I know most folks go bigger but for a proper snow tyre I think I would prefer thinner. Any reason why I should not do this? Apart from aesthetic appearance. It looks like they come in 106H which I think should be OK. Will normal rims take a 225 OK? I don't want them coming off the rim! Many thanks Ian

That is pretty narrow. You may have trouble with irregular wear.

I understand wanting a narrower tire for less flotation on snow, the stock 245's are pretty narrow to begin with. The wk's do come from the factory with 235's however.

I have 255's on a 9" wide wheel (stock is 7.5") and I have to run a pretty high air pressure to get tire wear to a minimum.

Maybe I'll stick to 235s then!
