255's would probably suit your needs.

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

Safely on 18x8's yes, widest I'd go are 255's, can you try and go nuts with 275's or even 295's? Sure but I wouldn't recommend that.

yeah well **** youuu /ron white


i ran 275s on 8 inch wheels but those tires were nittos that ran small for their size. .at that time at least.

295 on an 8 inch wheel wouldn't look right with the sidewall and ****
