Look, this opinion is quite divergent. Some advise taking tires narrow and high, others advise the opposite - wide. But from my own experience. and also having read articles, I will say - narrow tires are good for a wet winter, when there is little snow and there is more water and slush on the roads. The wide tire is good for a very snowy winter. Narrow and tall behaves well on a wet road, and if it is also with a symmetrical pattern - in general a fairy tale. wide should be with an asymmetric pattern. In short, if you had tires in the summer of 185 \ 80 14 or 195 \ 80 14, then in the winter it is better to put 175 \ 60 14. but again, you need to focus on the climate zone - how much snow you have in winter.
