Which tires for winter R15 195/65 VS R18 225/40 ?

I have currently 18' rims with summer tires.
I want to prepare my car for winter, for driving on a snow this next few months.
Also i have spare 15" rims.
I want to buy new tires for winter and i don't know what would be better for driving on a snow.
To buy set of 4 tires 225/40 R18
or to buy set of 4 tires 195/65 R15

I know that for SLK 200 R170 is recommend R16,R17 and R18 i never saw anyone tryed with R15 rims?

I hope someone can help me to decide wich tires should i buy for winter.
