Unless the wheel is designed for that width tire you are pinching the tire to fit on the rim. That means you are changing the profile of the tire which in turn reduces the contact patch.

If you are staying with the same ratio then the diameter is larger which in turn changes the handling a little. Makes turn in quicker by raising the rear which changes the rake and trail a little.

Will it be noticeable on the Road Glide? Depends on how you ride.
