Default 225 vs 205

Anyone try to see the difference between running 225/45/17 vs the stock 205/55/16?

I am curious to see if the wider tire would run slower times.

I ran fastest on the stock 16" loaded to 40 psi (I got that from another i-clubber and it worked).

17" Rota Subzeros ran slower every time no matter what pressure.

My experiance.
