255mm wide on style 284 (8") rim

Those should fit no problem, correct? Just want to make sure. I currently run 235/45 tires, which would be 1% larger than the 255 ones. I'm not into that gay stretch n poke stuff so I hope this won't look like that. This would be a square setup. Thanks.

Here is a cool site that I use when trying to get an idea of how the profile and such will look:

https://www.rimsntires.com/specspro.jsp

Put one wheel on the left, what you want to change to on the right and it will show you as well as tell you how close to the suspension you will be and what, if any, difference in the speedometer reading will occur.

Is there a reason you want to go so wide on an 8" rim? You will have the opposite look of a stretch. Your tire will over stretch from the wheel like an SUV look.

Just wanted to see how wide I can go on these rims without getting new ones. I had a feeling it'll be too wide. I guess I'll just get wider rims and run 265mm tires instead. Thank you though.
