Winter Tyres

Guys and Girls,

This will be my first winter on the MTB. I recently purchased my first bike and ended up going for the Rockrider 8.1. The bike came with Michelin xc tyres on it and I thought these were ok until I went on a slippy, wet ride and I lost loads of traction and sometimes the bike didn't even go where I pointed it because of the slippy surface. The tyres fitted are 26 x 2.0. Would I need to change the rims if I wanted to fit a wider tyre or would I be able to fit a wider tyre? Can anyone recommend a decent winter tyre that doesn't cost more than say £35 a tyre? Thanks all.
