I'd personally recommend even smaller rims for winter use, with higher side-walls on the tyres.
Especially if you don't know where you're treading, hitting bumps covered with snow, over curbs etc. Let the rubber take the impact rather than the rim.

Foranyone with GLA 45 for the brakes :) those are perfect, plus finefor any GLA narrower is not always best based on vehicle weight.

To test a theory, take it to extremes. If you ran your car through water or snow with wheels like disc brakes, you just know they would cut through any snow or water in your path. On the other hand, if you ran tyres like you find on an Argocat, you'd float on top of snow and aquaplane on water. Thus for driving in heavy rain or snow, the narrower the tyre the better. I also agree wholeheartedly with Pip about running smaller rims for winter, brake disc clearance notwithstanding. It's what MB recommend, and for good reason.
