What you said is true for the dry, but the wet is a different story. When
the ground is slippery, the benefit of the extra contact area is negated
by the pounds per square inch problem. I was warned of this when I switched to the
wider tires, but dry traction was more important to me than wet. Beyond that
though, I think that the Dunlops might be a softer compound than the Falkens.
I am getting a lot more tire screetching in turns than I had with the Dunlops.
