Depends what you're after. For dry performance wider would certainly be stickier, though I suspect feel and precision (turn in, etc) will suffer a little, and breakaway over the limit will become slightly more abrupt. For the street I went with stock sizes to maximize feel and drive-ability. If I was competing (autocross, etc) in the dry I'd max out the tire width.
