Default Tires on 16" rims

So the stock 215/65/16 BFG tires on the non PP mustangs are complete crap. All they do is squeal and they can't catch any traction worth their life.

Would a lower profile, wider tire help turning AND straight line performance? I want better of both worlds, just don't know what size to get.. I was thinking getting 235/55R16 tires..

Also, should I get a wider rear than the fronts?
