For some, noise is also important, but not for me.

Re Noise: I don't care so much about the volume of noise, it's more about the quality of the noise. I've had a couple of sets of winters that I couldn't wait to get off in the spring, partly from the noise (but also because of their imprecise steering feel and numb driver feedback).
I am looking for snow tires for my original 18" AREO rims.
Do I just use the size specs as the all season tires?
Yes. 235/45R18.

I went with Michelin X-Ice Xi3 on my 18" Aeros and they worked well this past winter. I bought a second set of the 18" rims from Tesla for $200 each and just have two full sets of wheels to swap twice a year.
