Time to change my tires...

gives you a bit more contact to the ground, but going overboard can give you some big rotational mass you didn't want if you're into pushing the car. whats your wheel size and current tire size?

Depending on how much power you are putting down it would help find the right width. If you really need the traction then get the widest you can. But if you don't really need it then don't go too overboard on it, although it does make it look really aggressive with wider wheels.
