Overall diameter is more to me right now. The smaller the diameter the quicker the acceleration. Too wide a tire will move around on a narrow rim so just don’t mount a tire two inches wider than the rim. I would use the survey results to determine which tire had the best dry grip and go with that one. Consider the treadwear as well. Lower is better for autocross but the manufacturer pulls this number out of thin air.
