  1. Having wide tires increase the surface area of contact which might offer better grip, but generally it is supposed that dry friction is independent of surface area. One more thing is the friction involved here is very high, so you need to have wider tires to support such a high amount of friction. Thin tires may not be able to bear such high forces. One more assumption we can make is wider tires have the possibility of more irregularity on the surface so increasing the friction. You can read about factors affecting friciton in this article. https://dewwool.com/factors-affectin
