I expect that a wider tyre should last longer (everything else being equal). A wider tyre means more rubber on the road. This would lead to less pressure psi on the tyre from the road, and hence less wear. However, I doubt that the difference would be noticeable unless there was a large discrepency in the tyre widths.
