This is an important question.

My own thought is that it varies with each rider.

I'm not powerful and am very sensitive to tire, tube and rim weight. Light tubes, thin tires and light wheels help me keep up with stronger riders on group rides. I would definitely examine weight if going significantly wider.

More powerful riders might not be as sensitive to increased weight.
