Default Tires on Stock BBS Wheels

OK, stay with me on this one while I explain.
I am currently running cheap 225/45/17 tires on my 05 BBS wheels. I want to take the Azenis off my track rims (245/45/17) and put them on the stock BBS. I have decided that the BBS will be my track setup for a while. Any concerns on taking that setup to auto-x or track? I didn't see any concern after researching but wanted to get additional opinions.

Also, I will be putting a set of RE070's (225/45/17) on my current track wheels (5Zigen GN+) and will run them as my daily driver setup. They are 8.5 inches wide versus the stock BBS which are 8 inches. Any concern running them on a wider rim? Bridgestone's website says that the max the RE070's will go is on a 8.5 inch wheel.

Any feedback appreciated.

Thanks!
