If you want great handling fit a widened beam and 8 inch wide tyres - it'll stick to the road like the proverbial to a blanket. It'll corner like it's on rails.
If you want to really destroy your handling, really narrow the beam and fit skinny front tyres.
Somewhere in between those two extremes is a "happy place" where we all have our individual "sweet spots", whether its for looks, or performance or cornering or a blend of the all three.
There's the blunt facts - make your choice on width.
My next ride is on SMART skinnies and a 4" narrowed beam, but I chose this combo and I'm happy to live with it on a lightweight "toy" car for sunday driving. The same combo on a daily driver van - I wouldn't go near it personally.
