Question Sumitomo HTR+ or ContiExtremeContact

I live in New England and want some good all season tires (better than the oem Bridgestones). From some of the reviews I've read it looks like I should stay with the 205-55-16 for better traction in the snow rather than go to a 225-50-16. Is this because of the taller sidewall?? If I was to go to the larger tire I'd take the Sumitomo HTR+ because TireRack doesn't have any Conti's in stock. Does anyone know of any place that stocks the 225-50-16 Conti??? If it's between the Conti Extreme Contact and HTR+ at the 205 size I think the Conti will give me better year round performance. What do people think???
