what do bigger/deeper lipped rims do?

I have a question about rims with bigger/deeper lips. does having a bigger/deeper lip on your rims do anything for your car or rims? does it help your rims in any way from getting warpped or what? do the bigger/deeper lips help your cars handling?
thnx

well the bigger the dish the bigger the tire that you could get on there which then I guess you could say that it helps with handleing

Not necessarily. There are wheels that are wide and have no lip. (ie BBS CH)
