2014 Overland with 2014 Limited (ORA) Wheels for Snows

First off, I debated bumping an old thread, but I had slightly different questions.

I own a 2014 Overland with 20" Wheels (WRD - 20" x 8") and Fortera Tires (P265/50R20). I was not impressed with the snow performance of these tires last season and vowed to get snows for the future...

I just came across 4 lightly used 2014 Limited wheels (WBL - 18" x 8") with the stock Latitude Tour tires (P265/60R18). My dad will take the rubber for his Limited and I'd like to use the 18" wheels for snows. I'm leaning towards the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 in a 265/60R18.

It appears that the Blizzaks have the same diameter (30.5) and an almost equivalent revolutions per mile as the Forteras (683 vs 686). My first question is, since I'm not swapping out the spare, would this have any impact if I did have to change a flat (e.g., running three 18" wheels with one 20" wheel with the slightly different revs/mile)?

My next question is, do I need any spacers to run the Limited wheels on the Overland? I haven't seen any mention of the need here, but then I haven't seen anyone say you don't need it either.

Ideally, I'd like to run a narrower tire (like a 245 or 255) but none of those tire size combinations come as close on diameter and revs/mile. I'm assuming I'd run a larger risk of damage to the differentials.

Thanks,
T.J.

WBL is also an Overland option. No need for spacers.
