Go bigger in terms of wheel diameter and go wider in terms
of blade width whenever possible. My opinion is if you want
to do a lot of resawing get a big flat-wheel saw and run as wide
a blade on it as you can.

Narrow blades will cut straight when they are fresh but they
dull quickly and start to lead and cut bellies in the boards. Wider
blades have more beam strength front to back and resist
following the grain better as they get dull.
