I remember this article from a couple years ago about different size wheels/aspect ratios:
http://www.caranddriver.com/features...d-tires-tested

It's not perfect but nice to see some actual testing done. They went from a 195/65-15 all the way up to a 235/35-19 (24lb difference between those two sizes )

generally they saw more grip as wheel size increased/aspect ration decreased but also increased acceleration times.
