The wider wheel will support sidewall more, so when all other things are equal, the Ampliform will ride stiffer because of more sidewall support with benefit of giving a lot more stability in the corners for the same tire size. Most going with 17x8 go with 225/45 or 235/40. I seem to recall that tire choice of yours comes in 225/45. Yes, slightly tall but many have posted pics at Miata.net, perhaps have a look. I currently have 225/45/17 on wife's 17x8 Tungsten 6UL on her Supercharged RF.
Near the top of this post, you have a post with two pics of a ND RF LE Grey Metallic with Ampliform Dark Metallic Graphite 17x8s. The tires appear to be Bridgestone RE-71R...that I can't quite be sure say 245/40R17 (???)
Are the tires 245/40R17s (??)
And, if so, are those rims 17x8s (??)

I’m on coilovers with a height of 13.25”F/13.5”R. This is a daily driver with no track or autocross use, but spirited canyon runs are frequent. I may go up to 225/45 in the future, so I’d want to know if I’d need to do any fender rolling. Thanks!
