Have always figured that the accident risk is several times higher under adverse weather in that vein I set up my car for worst case. Dry handling is a no brainer, slip angles are only a fraction of bad weather.
I always try and pick tires that have a tread no wider than the wheel rim width. Going bigger means that I will have a tire tread that is bowed a lot more and is subject to uneven wear particularly at higher pressures.
Wide tires make for slippery handling in the wet and snow. Wide has to clear a lot more material in front of tire so that it can come in contact with the road.

“There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”
