Tire width is used to determine rim width, not tire diameter.
Ok thank you for the reply. I am trying to reach out to class 1 racers. We plan on running 37 12.5 17 bfgoodrich tires and was wondering what is better 6.5 or 8 inch wide Method 103 wide 5 wheels

I use to race this class 1 with 17x9 BTRs on 6x5.5 and when they available raced the BFGs either the original projects or the KR2 at 37X12.5x17 and later we switched to Toyos 37x13.5 MT

Ran 17x6.5 Methods with 37s and recently switched to 17x8 Trail Ready wheels. Both work. 6.5s tires were bit rounded contact patch and harder to mount. 8s have flatter contact patch and tire sits a bit wider. I have several used Method 17x6.5 - 3'' back space with used KR2s if looking to buy any spares. PM if you have any questions.
