265 vs 245 for MDX

I am thinking about running a wider snow tire on my MDX for winter. Cn I safely and efficiently move to a 265/65r 17 on my 2003 MDX?

And why would you want to do that? If anything you should go narrower for best snow/ice performance. A narrow tire cuts through snow where a wider tire floats and with ice the narrow tire allows more weight per square inch of contact resulting in better traction. Going wider is the worst thing you can do, but whatever you do always be mindful of the gross weight rating for the tire you choose. Make sure the selected tires have a combined rating that meets or exceeds the vehicle gross weight rating.
