I sell tires and repairs for a living. You'll get much better steering feel and control. It will seem a little harsh feeling at first, but most people gladly trade that off for the look and control.
Oh also, wide tires stink in snow & rain, and low profile tires/wheels are more easily broken or damaged in potholes. Many who do the 24's tend to want more brakes later to overcome the greater weight and traction of the big wheel set.
In the Northeast we take off the low profile for snow season and put on our ski season tires. Or if you can find a tire that's you size and has good winter behavior, leave em on. Just watch out for the holes and be prepared for road salt and sand which can etch the wheels' finish over time.
Do it, you'll be really happy, it's the best instant change you can make to a vehicle.
