In my opinion you want to keep your wrists over your elbows, so I would limit your close grip width to no closer than when your elbows are directly at your sides. If that makes sense.

I tend to do close grips like you...a thumb from the smooth. In the past I also used a slightly more narrow grip but my triceps are strong so the weight moved was about the same.

I would say give them a try, but I wouldn't be surprised if the weight moved is about the same. You sound triceps strong.
