Are the 275 tire you speak of the ones in the front or the backSlowEclipseGS-T said:If you like the way they look, then go for it. I know that they can be physically mounted on an 8" rim, they just balloon a bit, and don't handle as good as they would on a wider rim. Here's a pic of the 275 tire on my Mustang. Notice how flat the sidewall is on these rims? You won't be able to get them to fit like that, but as long as you like it, then do it.
