Acura MDX Elite 2019 winter tires

A few quick questions:

1. I just bought a new MDX Elite, and need to figure out if I need winter tires. Anyone have this car and can comment if you have bought or not? Mostly Toronto, but some Muskoka in the winter.

2. I have a 2-year old set of Toyo GSI 5 - 235/55R20, but it looks like the Acura suggests 265/45R20. Will these not fit, or just not preferred? Sorry, I know nothing in this area

3. If I need to buy new ones, and sell my 2 year old tires, where best to do so, Kijiji or other specialized sites (like somewhere on RFD?)?

TIA

T.

Thanks for answering part 1, any takers on part 2 or 3 of the question?

235-55-20? That's a very strange size.

The old tires are much narrower (11%), and yet 2.7% taller in diameter. It's less than 3% so i suppose it's feasible to use them if they don't rub and that the tires aren't too narrow for your OEM wheels. .

It would be like having wagon wheels on your SUV though.

I personally wouldn't run them

Simply Tire has options for 235-65-17 or 245-60-18

Tire Rack says 245-50-20, 245-55-19, 245-60-18, 245-65-17
