Default Sorry, last dumb tire question

My stock tires, Goodyear HPs 275/60/20, ride like rocks, don't like wetness, and feel every bump. I will be getting one of these; Nitto terra grapplers in size 275/65/20 or 295/60/20. They should fit with my Daystar front leveling kit.
Now, here's the dumb question. Can anyone tell me how the ride/ handling of these two sizes would compare to each other?
Thanks for putting up with these questions.

With a wider tire they tend to wonder a bit more. I find the wider it is the more cushion they have. they just have more contact area. In bad weather conditions the wider the tire the worse it is. In snow a wide tire is like a snow shoe, just sits on top. I have 305s on my truck now and in the snow they are horrible!

I personally love a wider tire. they look so much better and I dont know what it is but I like them on the road. My 07 Ram has 13.5" wide tires and I love it
