From a strictly traction standpoint on a 12" rim which is the better tire? From my research it seems they are the same compound and construction but with the R having more tread cuts. My initial thought is that it's larger size would more than make up for the additional tread voids. Thoughts?

I run the 295/65 R tire and my 3550lb car has gone 1.23 60ft. The tire does fine at most tracks. Besides the width, the larger diameter tire with taller sidewall also helps.
