Lets put it this way. A 245 on an 8" will probably outperform a 225 in most cases. Most race classes that are limited as to rim width usually run the wider of all tire choices if they fit.

However there are other variables like alignment and tire construction that can have an impact.

Tire construction is probably a bigger variable. A sticky 225 like a Toyo RA1 is going to out perform a 300 tread ware rating tire significantly even if it is wider.

I really liked the Dunlop Z1 Star Spec's but they only come in 205/225.
