Upgrading to wider tires to a reasonable extent will usually improve handling of your cars. Wider tires provides better roadholding in dry roads due to the bigger tire contact patch. This will also reduce braking distance. The downside is degrading in fuel economy and less resistance to hydroplaning in the wet. In any case you should not buy a set of tires that is too wide.
