Tire Rack did some informative testing of cornering grip with different tire sizes. Gist of the results is slight increases in tire width with reduced profile do increase cornering g. But suspension/handling design is complex, and increasing tire width more than one size does not improve grip.

"Feel"? Not sure how to measure that. Not a fan of go-kart every pebble in the road 'feel'. What I enjoy is informative feedback from the steering wheel that helps me get closer to the perfect lap. I want the tires to talk to me. IMO, my i8 is better than my previous M3 in that regard.
