According to some, a wider (wider tread width) tyre will give less comfort because the larger contact patch goes over more undulations(pebbles/cracks/rough patches) in the road.
If you mean higher profile - then yes.
Actually you're both correct in your own ways. While a wider tyre covers more area, it has a greater chance of picking up any undulations on the road but.....lets say you're driving on a potholed road, it is possible that the wider tyre may cover the whole diameter of the pothole preventing the tyre from actually entering it, making for a smoother ride quality.
