Generally in winter, to go through the snow; you would go with a narrower tire and a higher aspect ratio.
The combination you have is 10mm wider and is going to reduce your ground clearance about 5mm; the wrong way in my opinion

If someone is giving you those then yah, they will do the job. If you are purchasing something new then the taller and narrower tires are the better bet, like @Mad Myche said.
