Any reason you want to run wider?
Also what's your offset and wheel width?

Would running such a wide front Tyre on a track deteriorate steering/control of car?

If you're running 2.5 camber and have a lot of space, you should be able to run a 245 depending on the brand. It's approx. 10mm wider. Remember you'll still need to turn though :P
