Just like the title says: Is it realistic to put 225/60 tires on 18x8 wheels? Specifically, these will be snow tires to replace the nearly worn out tires I have now.

Not sure why you'd go so narrow. I've been looking at tire options lately. Check out 265/60R18. I've found many tires in this size. Also check out Nokians lineup in this size. 265/60/R18 is 30.4 to 30.6" outer tire diameter. So slightly bigger than stock depending on what you have but only by 3/4 to 1" (I think)....

Try tirerack.com, discount tire, or custom offsets (Custom Offsets | Largest Selection of Custom Truck Wheels and Suspension Kits) you can search for snow tires by size, vehicle or type.

NTDI, that is a great idea! I had been considering the narrower tire because it is a size where I could find a few more reasonably priced options, but 265/60/18 is even better.
