Yes it will affect it. Will you notice it? Maybe.

In general wider tires mean more traction but slower handling. I wouldn't see any reason to deviate from the stock tire sizes.

Go for the new pilot power 3's, I have them on my Z and they're sweet. Warm up fast, super grippy, very stable in corners. Tread life is better than expected also, I'll expect to get 7 or 8k from the rear, and I don't baby it around either.
