The rule of thumb is that winter tires should be narrower...idea is that 
the narrower tire will sink more and penetrate down to the more solid stuff.

Now when it comes to tires
these are the only winter tires I can recomend, I have driven on many 
diffirent winter tires and so far nothing can compare to hakkas 
(hakkapeliitta 2), without studs these are awsome tires BUT with Quattro 
and studs, driving on ice, snow, slush, or any combination of these, is 
mearly just another drive on a rainy day !

(no I do not own nokian stock :-)
