piston rings 1/16 vs 5/64

I know this has been discusses before, just trying to get more up to date info on using 1/16 piston rings vs a 5/64 the pros and cons, what can each handle? Reading ive found seems not to realy matter which to use but wounder if there is a neg side to using a smaller ring thickness, ive always been told to use a 5/64 ring, but like to try a 1/16 if i knew more about the usage of a smaller ring thickness..

thanks for your time
