Wide is normal almost everywhere.  This is what is referred to as 5 kHz deviation with 15 kHz channel spacing.  The NBFM mode is half or less than that.

15 kHz channel spacing is used in many locations, 20 kHz separation is used mainly on the west coast and also in Texas if I recall.  Look in the ARRL Repeater Guides to see which is used where.

Wide FM is to receive FM broadcast and should not be used for amateur communications, repeaters included.
NBFM is normal I think
