A wider rim is always better for a given section width of tire.If you can the tell the difference on a street based track car,who knows for sure.I have always tried to go with the max width recommended for the tire size used.

Here is a pic of my old 5. Mustang with 245/45-17's on 9's or 9.5's back in 1987.
