Changing the front tire to a thinner profile, will affect the trail and the tire surface touching the ground.
The bike will lower it's front steering pivot which means reducing the rake angle which reduces the trail
That means steeper cornering and unstable steering at high speed riding.
On the other hand, getting the wheel's axle closer to the ground increases the trail.
That interprets to stability at high speeds but more "heavy" steering at lower speed cornering.
So you have to figure out those differences to see if the 60 profile suits you better.
