Default Skinny or Fatter

Regarding a front tire on a Cruiser which tire size is better for handling bumps, curves, rain, long distance riding, etc...
Tire A) 90/90-21
or
Tire B) 140/80-17

What are you trying to do? Usually a fatter tire is more stable. A fatter tire on a cruiser application will turn slower though. Tires are a compromise you can't ask them to do everything perfect.
