205/60R-16 or suggested 225/55-R16

I was pricing wheels and winter tires on the tirerack site and found that there was quite a bit difference in price of the tires based on a slight size difference.

General Altimax Artic
205s $86 each
225s $115 each
total price difference of $116!

Also, when you use Tirerack's speedo conversion calculator the 205s are off by less then the 225s because of the additional sidewall height (60 compared to 55).

Also, I have read that a skinnier winter tire is preferred for the snow.

Anyone have any reasons to go with the 225s instead of the 205s?

Thanks for the input...
