Sorry, I wasn't asking about a wider tire. I was asking the effects of a wider wheel on a tire.

Duh, thanks Supercourse. I didn't think to look on tirerack for information about tire tech, I'm too used to shopping and leaving to explore the site. That helps narrow searches a lot better than just Google!

Thanks a lot everyone for pointing me in the right direction!
