The 16x8's were available as an option on the SE's coupes as well, one had to order the B4U package to get them.
If the car was fitted with the 16x8's the tires were 245 Eagle ZR's.
the photo is somewhat clear, see the print to the right of the wheels at the bottom,
this is my '92 model year advertising brochure

All B4U cars came with 16x8" crosslace wheels. That said, cars with the GTP package got 245/50/16s, SE cars got 225/60/16s. The tire placard in the drivers side door jamb will reflect this.
To answer your question, the 245s offer a bit more traction and the shorter sidewall helps with handling for the more sporty GTP package cars.
