Tires are designed to run on a specific width wheel. On the same wheel all a bigger tire will do is wrap the side contact patch around tighter and create a "corner" on the tire right where you're used to having full contact. Bad. Go to a wider wheel if you want a wider look/performance.

Why would you want to change the front tire size too?
