Default Winter Tire ?

Is there any negatives to using 16 in rims fitted with 195/60r 16's? I am looking at the prices difference between the two and it seems like a better idea. I have always heard that narrow tires are better for snow traction anyways. This is for a 2011 4 door in Ohio

16" wheel is fine. I would go with a different tire though. 215/55 is going to be a better fit for the WRX. I currently actually use a set of 215/55 Graspic DS-3's on 16" steel wheels in Ohio. The Generals are also good tires for the area for a good price.
