225/45/17 is pretty much the max you can run on 17x8+50 without fender work.
245/40 on an 8" wheel will make your turn in really soft and numb. Muffin topping is not beneficial to handling.

In autocross A/ and B/Street classes it is common to put a 245/40-17 on the OEM 7" wide rim. Needless to say, it is pinched. However, most say it is faster with better support in the front.

Whether the tire should be maxed or the rim should be maxed depends on the rules and the tires. In autocross street classes, OEM widths are required. In STR, the rim is 9" and the tire 255 or less. Some NASA classes restrict tire section width.

Asphalt super late models (on left) and classic Formula Fords (on right) have rim width restrictions and used tires that are fairly heavily cantilevered. However, those tires are specifically designed for that application.

You put a 225/45 on a 9 inch wide wheel?

It is a little stretched but not too bad. Eventually I will work my way up to 245 front 255 rear, I just didnt want to do it at my first track event (too much oversteer)?

I ended up going with 245/255 but havent done a track day yet. But its been great on the street.

Any pics of the 225 on the wheel, I was tempted to do that myself.
